Gerald Ettl: 4.-Tb5 ist ein völlig uninteressanter Verteidigungszug.

Henrik Juel: I agree completely, Gerald
4.Sc3 threatens 5.Th3, and 4... Tb5? does not prevent the threat, it just delays the mate by one move (2017-02-14)
Henrik Juel: The problem was reprinted in Die Schwalbe to commemorate the author's death a century earlier; here the dual after 4... Tb5 was not mentioned (but the immaterial promotion mate dual was...) (2017-02-14)

Nr.4444 (Fiedler): „Diese sogenannte ‚Gravur‘ – ein Problem mit 8 bis 10 Steinen – beinhaltet ein überraschendes Springeropfer am Anfang zwecks Linienräumung für das bekannte Ende.“ (K.Keller, Ulm) Das starke 1...c1D+! im Satz muss verhindert werden, aber 1.Df5? ist patt „Aber hier hat mich das Springer-Opfer-Manöver zu Beginn der Lösung doch überrascht und gefoppt“ (H.Suwe, Winsen): 1.Sc3+! Kc1 2.Sb1 K:b1 (nicht 2...Kd1? 3.Dg4+ Kc1 4.Dc4 Kd1 5.De2+ Kc1 6.De1 matt, 4...K:b1 5.De4 Kc1 6.De1 matt). Jetzt gibt es nach 3.Df5 keine Pattsituation mehr und 3...Kc1 4.Df4+ Kd1 (4...Kb1? 5.De4 Kc1 6.De1 matt) 5.Dd4+ Kc1 6.De3+ Kb1 (6...Kd1? 7.De1 matt) 7.De4 (Zugzwang) Kc1 8.De1 führt zum Mustermatt (4 Punkte)
