Alfred Pfeiffer: Was ist "Iceberg"? Ist das eine Art Augsburger Schach? (2010-09-29)
Alfred Pfeiffer: "Iceberg" ist Peter Fayers' Version des Augsburger Schachs, bei folgenden drei Unterschiede gelten (Quelle: "http://www.bcvs.ukf.net/augsb.htm"):
E1: Pieces may combine, but not kings, and NOT PAWNS either (not even when moving to promote).
E2: The game-array queen is not separable, and Qs are distinct from (R+B)s.
E3: A pawn may promote to any combination seen in the diagram, or generated during play. (2010-10-11)
A.Buchanan: Link is now at https://www.mayhematics.com/s/augsb.htm. Piece images to make up the diagrams have been lost, but you can get a clue what the diagrams were by clicking in the html. (2019-02-04)

Als Quelle wird "Burnley Express" in 'The Chess Problem: Text-Book with Illustrations' angegeben.
Motto: "We cannot all be masters"
SCHRECKE: C+, popeye 4.87 (2022-04-16)
athulin: Tourney source is probably best expressed as 'Burnley Express', as the name changed in the period.

First publication: Burnley Express and Advertiser, i. 173 (1881-03-26), p. 3, prb. 164.

The reference to a reprint in Canadian Chess Problems below seems odd: as far as I can find that problem is a #3 by G. A. Robinson with a quite different position. (https://books.google.se/books?id=bywVAAAAYAAJ&dq=canadian%20chess%20problems&pg=PA140#v=onepage&q&f=true) (2022-09-28)
Mario Richter: Anders is right, Dieter mixed up two sources: the correct reprint source name is not 'Canadian Chess Problems', but 'The Chess Problem. Text-Book with illustrations', p. 157, Problem 140. (Its publication year is usually given as 1886, not 1887).

One general remark: when introducing new sources in the PDB, the information provided should make it possible to identify the source uniquely. That is, names like 'Times', 'Mail', or in this case 'Express' without additions, should be avoided. I know that this is not easy, since in many cases the problem data comes only from secondary sources, where the original source may only be given in rudimentary form (e.g. something like "Our today's problem is taken from 'The Mail'"). Perhaps it would be better in such cases to not introduce a new source but onlyx to make a remark in the comment field of the problem ... (2022-09-28)

'Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems' ist sich bei der Quelle nicht sicher und gibt an: "Elizabeth Herald, c. 1890?", 'Der Schachzug' gibt an: "'Chess Magazine', 1878". Die 'Philadelphia Times' schreibt: "The following problem by Mr. Samuel Loyd, originally published in the New York 'Evening Telegram' and reprinted in the 'International' ..."

'New York Evening Telegram' (Leiter der Schachrubrik "Castles and Kings": Sam Loyd):
Composers not infrequently get the idea of the trick for a problem by first placing the black king on the board alone and adding the other pieces one at a time as the problem becomes developed during the course of construction. Sometimes the relative positions of the kings will suggest a good theme to build upon. During a recent visit to the New York Chess Club our chess editor was invited to compose an impromptu position for the members to solve, and the placing of the two kings in opposite corners of the board - as shown on the diagram - was given as a theme to work upon. The position of the pieces illustrates the group of solvers in one corner, and the author in another awaiting the arrival of the solution, which, by the way, he will add, wass not so spontaneous as the composing. It is a crude affair, but is thought to give evidence of latent genius which may yet come to the surface. While referring to the placing of the kings, we give our readers another little puzzle in the same line [s. P1364636], which they will find both amusing and instructive ..."

'DAZ'-Lösungsanalyse: "Den starken Drohungen des Schw. (Dxe8, Tb3-a3,h2-h1=D) kann Wß. nur durch starke Mattdrohungen begegnen. Als solche ergibt sich 1. Sd4-f5, was 2. Da1-h1+ und 2. Da1-a6 (--c6 oder b7) droht. Die stärkste Erwiderung ist natürlich Dh8xa1, worauf Sd7-f6 matt folgen könnte, wenn die D von der Deckung des Feldes f6 abgesperrt werden könnte. Das erreicht aber Wß. durch 2. c2-c4+, worauf Schw. b4xc3ep spielen muß und Sd7-f6 matt setzt. Nun hat Schw. gegen 2. Dh1+ auch die Verteidigung La7-g1, was auch die Fortsetzung 2. Da1-a6 (wegen Dh8-a1) ausschließt. Dann schließt aber Wß. durch 2. e2-e4+ f4xe3ep die L-Schräge und Sd7 gibt auf b6 matt. Nicht minder fesselnd gestaltet sich das Spiel, wenn Bd3 von einem T geschlagen wird: 1. ... Tb3xd3 2. c2-c4+ b4xc3ep 3. Da1-a2 matt und 1. ... Th3-d3 2. e2-e4+ f4xe3ep 3. Da1-h1 matt. In diesem Fall wird durch das erzwungene Kreuzen ['DAZ'-Sprechweise für "en passant-Schlagen"] der betr. T verhindert, zwischenzusetzen. Die Aufgabe, die also mittels des Kreuzens einmal die Sperrung zweier Schrägen, das anderemal die Sperrung einer seitlichen Turmreihe durchsetzt, ist ein Meisterwerk ersten Ranges."
'DAZ' gibt als Quelle "1. Preis Strategie-Turnier 1908" an.

Yoav Ben-Zvi (The Problemist, 05/2017): The key by the White queen crosses c4, a Critical effect that is negative as it prevents the mate by P-c4 in response to random moves by bNc5 and bBb5, and also crosses e4, an Anticritical effect that is positive as it allows the mate by Pe4 in response to the same random moves. Correction moves by bB in the Set play and by bN in the solution lead to reciprocal change of mates with those in response to the random moves.

Zitat aus der WHZ: 'Der Verfasser dieser zierlichen Aufgabe ist, wie das "Rigaer Tageblatt" mitteilt, ein 13jähriger Knabe'.

KAL Kubbel wurde am 25.12.1891 geboren, was auf ein falsches 'Knabenalter' oder auf ein falsches Jahr beim Rigaer Tageblatt hindeutet.
Mario Richter: ????????? ?????? ?.?.??????? (Moskau, 1958; S.44, Problem Nr.101) nennt auch 1905 als Publikationsdatum.
(Btw., bei russichen Datumsangaben aus der Zarenzeit ist wegen des anderen Kalenders immer ein bißchen Vorsicht angesagt, gerade bei Daten rund um den Jahreswechsel.) (2011-11-26)
Mario Richter: Trotz "charset=utf-8" erscheinen jetzt wieder "???...". Deshalb nochmal die Sekundärquelle in transkription: "Isbrannije Sadatschij L.I.Kubbelja" (2011-11-26)

Motto: "Fleeting thoughts"

Nachdruck in 'The Problemist' innerhalb eines Artikels von Paul Valois "IN THE LIBRARY: Burnley Express, May 1879 - April 1882", in dem auch einige Details zum Problemturnier genannt werden.
athulin: Won 1 pr. of Burnley Express tourney (announced in 1880, awards publ. in 1881 -- the name
of the newspaper changed during this period).

First publication in Burnley Express and Advertiser, i. 153 (1880-11-06), p. 3, prb. 118.

J. Thursby, the chess editor, in the last issue of the grace period before the prel.
awards became final, reprinted an observation from Illustrated London News that
pointed out a similarity between this problem and P1022231. However, no further
notice seems to have been taken, not even a note from the judge (J. P. Taylor)
about a coincidence. (2022-09-28)
athulin: (Added: Author is J. G. Finch, as stated by Brian S, and died shortly before the award was announced.) (2022-09-28)

vf: Oskar Rittershofer, 15.11.1972, Schach-Echo

Zum Autor schreibt 'Schachsport': "Rund 17 Jahre lang (etwa 1955-1972) hat Gerald Sladek, Vöest-Angestellter, Schachprobleme produziert; Aufgaben, die größtenteils Aufsehen erregten und ihm national wie international Anerkennung und zahlreiche Turnierpreise einbrachten. In seiner Glanzzeit zäh1te Sladek zu den führenden Komponisten unseres Landes, manche seiner raffiniert-verschmitzten Aufgaben wurden von den Ratefüchsen für unlösbar gehalten - das ist Qualitätsbeweis genug.
Im Heft 5/86 von 'Schach+aktiv' hat F. Chlubna den ganz individuellen Stil des Linzer Meisters treffend wiedergegeben.
Obwohl auch Sladek Mitbegründer der 'Linzer Problemrunde' war und nebenbei zwei Problemspalten in angesehenen Tageszeitungen redigiert, ist er - seit 1972 - leider nicht mehr 'problemaktiv' geworden.
Ob der einstige 'Problemlöwe' - vielleicht im Ruhestand neu motiviert - wieder 'rückfällig' werden kann?
Die Problemwelt wäre sicher dankbar; diesbezügliche Anstrengungen werden auch von seiten der Linzer Problemrunde - bisher leider vergeblich! - unternommen."
