Mario Richter: Illegale Stellung (mehr schwarze Bauernschläge notwendig als weiße Steine fehlen).
Offensichtlich ein Scherzproblem, Lösung vermutlich: entferne eine weiße Figur, dann:
- wTd3: Sd3#
- wSd4: Td4#
- wSc5: Dc5#

Henrik Juel: Writing the above solution in this order
-Td3, Sc5-d3#
-Sc5, Dc6-c5#
-Dc6, Sd4-c6#
-Sd4, Td3-d4#
discloses a cyclical pattern. (2010-2-26)

Auf welche Gedanken kommen Sie bei dieser Stellung?

Der Ld6 ist keine UWF und der sBg7 wurde auf seinem Ausgangsfeld geschlagen. Nach dem Autor muss der letzte Zug also Lf8-d6 gewesen sein, also illegale Stellung.
Datum der Originalpublikation nicht 100% sicher, laut ACM aus der "Jamaica Gleaner Christmas column".

Originalforderung: How has the position been arrived at and who is the winner, and in how many moves?

From the Jamaica Gleaner: "White mates in two moves. The last move made was by Black playing his Bishop and announcing mate. As it can be demonstrated that the Bishop is not a promoted Pawn and that Black's King's Knight's Pawn was captured on its original square by White's Queen's Knight's Pawn the Black Bishop must have been played from Bishop's square (f8) to Q3 (d6). This being an illegal move, White enforces the penalty of compelling Black to retract it and move his King whereupon White plays 1 PXB(Q) ch (1.gxf8=Q+) and mates next move by 2 Q-B4 (Qf4#). The following is a brief but pointed analysis, demonstrating the false move: White's Pawns have made six captures all on black squares. The Q Kt P (Pb2) made five of these and consequently captured the Kt P on the square upon which it now stands (g7). They could not have captured the Q B which is also lost. The White Bishop is the QRP (Pa2) promoted, the original KB having been captured on its own square as the unmoved Pawns show. To allow this promotion Black's QRP (Pa7) made two captures, the QKtP (Pb7) one, and the QBP (Pc7) two. The KRP (Ph7) has also made a capture, which accounts for the seven pieces White has lost. The Black Bishop is not a promoted Pawn, as if the Black KBP (Pf7) had played to the 7 th square (f2) and then captured a White piece on K or Kt square (e1 or g1) the captures by White Pawns cannot be accounted for without including the Black QB or KRP neither of which is available. As it can be demonstrated, then that the Black Bishop is not a promoted one, and that the KKtP was captured by the White Pawn which now stands on that square, in order to reach Q3 the Black Bishop must have an impossible move.

Der Kolumnist des ACM merkt aber zurecht an:
ACM: The above is a very fine piece of analytical work; but there is a slight flaw in connection with the minor condition, 'mate in two'. In a position of this kind we believe only that which can be proved; thus we do not think that White has any right to enact a penalty, as neither the analysis nor the conditions show that the Black Bishop came from Bishop's square on his last move; indeed, that Bishop may have played outside the Pawns on the very first move of the game which, being played, brought about the position.
A.Buchanan: I don't think this is cooked, I think it's just a very bad joke. Most time when moves are retracted it's because of self-check or illegal castling, occasional illegal en passant. But here we are meant to conclude that the Bl bishop has hopped over Bl pawn. There are problems by Hieronymus Fischer e.g. P1309484 where we are meant to conclude that a unit has escaped its game array cage somehow, but the piece is simply replaced: there is no move to be retracted and supplanted. But as long as such a problem is true to its own (joke) internal logic, it can't be described as cooked. If it fails (e.g. P1246715) it can indeed be cooked and repaired. (2019-10-22)
HBae: White plays 1 PXB(Q) ch (1.gxf8=Q+). Muß der sK nicht auf f5 stehen? (2019-10-22)
Henrik Juel: Last move (supposedly) was Lf8-d6#, which is obviously impossible and hence illegal
The penalty for this is that Black must replace Ld6 on f8 AND instead make an arbitrary move with his king
So the forward play is
0... Kf5,Kf6,Kh6 1.gxf8=D+ Kg5,Ke5 2.Df4# (2019-10-22)

Unglaublich, wie die 4 weißen Bauern e-h mit ihren Schritten haushalten müssen, damit am Ende der Weg für den weißen Königsturm und den umgewandelten schwarzen Läufer a7 nicht versperrt wird.
Dr. K. Fabel-Gedenkturnier
Henrik Juel: Typos:
The solution should read something like
1.Sxc4# (not 1... Sxb2??)
(because the retroplay shows that White has the move)
The last retraction in the given retroplay should read h2-h3, not h2-h1
Finally, the current PDB standard is to write the white retraction first, so the retroplay should read something like
-1... Se3 -2.Sd3 Sg2 ... -14.b2 Sb3 -15.h2
(Yes, I know that the animation machine requires full retro notation, but abbreviated notation is so much easier to write and to read...) (2019-11-10)
Henrik Juel: This fine retro deserves a closer look, I think
White captured [Lf8] and axb (to promote on b8, as Ld8 cannot get home to c1)
Black captured bxc, c7xd6, a third pawn capture to promote [Pf7] or [Ph7] to L on a black square, and a fourth capture to promote the other missing black pawn (since White did not capture a black pawn on the f- or h-file)
So Black did not capture [Lc1] on c1, and the plan for the retro play is to unpromote wSb2 on f8 and retract the resulting wP to f3 (not to f2, as sLa7 must unpromote on g1), allowing sSc4 to unpromote on e1 and letting the resulting sP uncapture on e3 a dark-squared wL, which goes to c1, permitting b2-b3 and Sb3-a1
The two knights cannot change the tempo, h2-h3 is needed at the end, and d3-d4 would prevent a white rook to get home to h1, so we can determine which camp starts the retroplay (2019-11-11)

Cook: Henrik Juel (2005-2-18): R: 1. Le5-g3 Tf5-f6 2. Lf6-e5+ Td5-f5 3. d2-d4 Td3-d5 etc.
auch in der Zeitschrift 'The Chess Problem' exakt mit dieser Stellung nachgedruckt, als Quelle ist dort (in der Rubrik "Selected From Early Days") genannt: "Italia Scac. 1917".

Falls tatsächlich ein Druckfehler vorliegt, und der wLg3 nach f2 gehört, scheint er sich weit verbreitet zu haben ...
Henrik Juel: 0... cxd3ep 1.Kd4#. -1.d2 Tf5 -2.Sf6 Td5 -3.Sf5 Td3 etc. (2004-3-18)
Henrik Juel: The problem is incorrect, because the retroplay could also be -1.Le5 Tf5 -2.Lf6 Td5 etc. (2005-2-18)
Mario Richter: Since there's also the even more trivial retroplay 0. ... f2-f3 Tf5-f6 1. Sf6-g4+ Tf3-f5 2. Sf5-h4+, my guess is, that the diagram is misprinted and that the wLg3 should be placed on f2. Doing so, the ep-key is justified, because in this case White's last move must have been d2-d4 (to provide d3 as a square for the black rook). (2011-8-19)
Mario Richter: A sin from my youth - today I do not see how the retroplay can be continued after 0. ... f2-f3 Tf5-f6 1. Sf6-g4+ Tf3-f5 2. Sf5-h4+ ???
So Henrik's cook is the only one, but I still think that my suggested correction is valid. (2019-10-18)
A.Buchanan: I agree with Mario. And it feels like a bug rather than a typo. This problem does not appear in WinChloe, either in source or number of pieces, so I can't check. (2019-10-19)

2) R: 1. d4xe3ep, dann 1. Lh7xe4+ 2. Sd3+ Lxd3#
play all play one stop play next play all
Beide Könige sind im Schach. Schwarz ist aufgefordert, den illegalen Zug d4xe3ep zurück zu nehmen und statt dessen einen anderen legalen Zug unter Berücksichtigung von "berührt - geführt" auszuführen.
A.Buchanan: Any idea why we think that the last move was ep rather than e.g. Kf5-e5+(+)? Unlike some joke problems, there is no illegality associated with the ep itself. R: 1. d4xe3ep+(+)? e2-e4 2. Lg8-h7.
What exactly was the touch-move rule in 1892? Wikipedia says "The 1862 laws of the British Chess Association's Law VII provided instead that if a player made an illegal move, "he must, at the choice of the opponent, and according to the case, either move his own man legally, capture the man legally, or move any other man legally moveable." I guess if the third option were chosen (which doesn't apply here), then Black gets to specify which piece he moves, as long as it's not the one he touched, and as long as it doesn't capture the piece which was captured by the illegal move. Is that a fair interpretation?
But outside Britain (or the British Empire!) the earlier 1845 rule would apply, even as late as 1893 (e.g. Lindermann v Echtermeyer, at Kiel) "If a player make a false move, i.e., play a Piece or Pawn to any square to which it cannot legally be moved, his adversary has the choice of three penalties; viz., 1st, of compelling him to let the Piece or Pawn remain on the square to which he played it; 2nd, to move correctly to another square; 3rd, to replace the Piece or Pawn and move his King."
So if someone was in stalemate, they could play any illegal move, and then could perhaps argue that the only option available to the opponent is to let them make that illegal move! (New bad joke!)
The Wikipedia article is currently incomplete about when these older rules were superseded, but I have requested an update. (2019-10-21)

Der sLf8 ist ein Pronkin-Läufer. Der wLc1 ist ein Frolkin-Ceriani-Pronkin-Läufer: er wird auf f6 geschlagen; der umgewandelte wBg2 kehrt als Läufer nach c1 zurück und wird dort geschlagen.
Henrik Juel: This fine proof game is an early (possibly the first) example of the Hashimoto theme:
A Pronkin officer (on its 'home square') is captured by a promoting pawn, which then goes to its 'home square', becoming a Pronkin officer of the opposite color
It is usually shown with Pronkin officers of the same kind, here two bishops
The capture means that the C-F theme element is also part of the Hashimoto theme (2019-10-29)
A.Buchanan: Thanks for this Henrik - very interesting. If you know some more Hashimoto-themed problems, here, then I can add a keyword. (2019-10-30)
Henrik Juel: I am pretty sure that there are several examples in the PDB, but the only one I know is P1068430, which may be the first and only non-proofgame showing the Hashimoto theme
I saw the theme name in a comment here a long time ago, but was reminded by Michel's comment to his P1068430 in Thomas Brand's most recent Retro der Woche (in his retroblog)
If you make changes, please also change the official comment above:
'The wLc1 is an F-C-P-bishop: it is captured on f6' makes little sense; what really happens is:
The original [wLc1] is captured on f6; it is replaced on c1 by a Pronkin bishop ([wPg2] promoted on f8), which is captured there by a promoting black pawn, which then goes to f8 as a black Pronkin bishop (2019-10-31)
Henrik Juel: I saw the Hashimoto theme name mentioned in P1068522, where my comment is rather pedantic
The promoted wT goes to h1, becoming a Pronkin-T, but then it goes to g1 to be captured by a black pawn, which goes to its 'home square'
I think this should be considered showing the H theme, so my definition above should have the parenthesis deleted, then reading
A Pronkin officer is captured by a promoting pawn, which then goes to its 'home square', becoming a Pronkin officer of the opposite color
Or very succinctly, as suggested by Paul (and similar to Michel's definition):
A Pronkin piece is captured by a virtual Pronkin piece
I prefer my own revised definition (surprise, surprise), as it clarifies the meaning of a 'virtual Pronkin piece'
Ideally new definitions should be agreed upon by experts like Paul and Michel (and of course the name-giving Sathoshi), but this is the PDB, where most definitions have been entered by non-experts... (2019-10-31)
Henrik Juel: P1097036 is an interesting extension of the Hashimoto theme:
[wSb1] is captured and replaced by a Pronkin-S, which is captured on b1 by a black pawn promoting to L and returning to c8 as a Pronkin-L ([Lc8] is captured afther this promotion)
The extension is that b1 is then occupied by a second Pronkin-S (2019-10-31)

Schon in dieser frühen Aufgabe finden wir drei schwarze Damenzüge. Insbesondere in der Zeit nach dem 2. Weltkrieg veröffentlichte Hasselkus weitere langzügige Miniaturen mit schwarzer Dame, in denen jedoch zwischenzeitlich Duale oder Nebenlösungen gefunden wurden.

Richter: Hans Gruber
Ein Stück mit einer unschuldig-unscheinbaren Stellung, die in einer
Beweispartie voller Phantasie und komplizierter Stafettenstrategie
erreicht wird. Besonders spannend ist, wie Ba4, Sg3 und Lb4
reaktiviert werden. Fein gelungen sind die Rückkehren von wSb1,
wSg1, wDd1, wTh1 und sLf8, die die Stafetterie umso verborgener
machen, weil alle Aktivisten wieder verräumt werden. (Ein ---
wünschenswertes! --- Wunder wäre es, wenn das korrekt wäre.)

Richter: Hans Gruber
Drei en passant-Schläge, keiner davon am Ende. Das Pronkin-Thema ist
eine feine Zugabe zu diesem Problem mit faszinierender
Stafettenstrategie. Der Autor betont das Fesselungsmatt; auch wenn
das kein sonderlich aufregender Punkt ist, ist das Mattbild doch für
eine Beweispartie ungewöhnlich elegant und damit eine feine Zugabe.
paul: The first 16 moves checked by Jacobi. (2019-11-5)
paul: And also tested the last 17 moves. (2019-11-5)
Henrik Juel: [Pc2] finishes its series of moves with 2.c5, so after 10... b6?, 11.cxb6 is illegal, because wPc5 is 'used'
10... b5+ 11.cxb6ep is legal, because the check cannot be answered by a 'fresh' man
Similar motivations for the black ep captures (2019-11-5)

Henrik Juel: I believe that the given retroplay is wrong. If you change it to
-5.c7xSb8=S Sc6 -6.d6xPc7 Sd4 -7.d5 Sf3 -8.d4 Sg1 -9.d3 h2xTg1=S -10.d2 h3 -11.h2xSg3
the position is legal: Black captured a7xPb6 and White promoted to D or T on a8. (2019-10-27)
Henrik Juel: The pawn play must be this:
White captured dxPc-c7xb8 and h2xg3 and promoted [Pa2] on a8
Black captured axPb, f7xe6, g7xf6, and h2xTg1 (2019-10-28)

play all play one stop play next play all
A.Buchanan: First then, is this problem cooked? Does Bl have an alternative last play to R: 1. a7-a5? E.g. R: 1. a6-a5 Sa7-c8 2. Tc8-c7 Lc7-d8 3. Td8-c8 seems to end in retrostalemate. (2019-10-19)
A.Buchanan: Or R: 1. a6-a5 Da7-b6 2. Ka5-a4 Sb6-c8 3. Tc8-c7 Sa4-b6 which seems to work, so this is a *not* en passant problem? (2019-10-19)
Henrik Juel: In Andrew's second retroplay -3... Sa4-b6 is illegal (because of the check from Ld8), so it seems that last move must be a7-a5 and that the problem is cooked in the forward play (2019-10-19)
Mario Richter: Henrik's post appeared while I was editing mine:
After R: 1. a6-a5 Da7-b6 2. Ka5-a4 Sb6-c8 3. Tc8-c7 wSb6 is "retro-pinned", because 3. ... Sa4-b6 leads to an illegal check.
R: 1. a7-a5 is the only legal last move, so the ep-key is justified.
If this is a cook or was intended by Dawson (e.g. as a trap for solvers) should be verified by looking at the BCM.
For problems where the ep-key is only a try, I suggest the term "cant-ep" as keyword ... (2019-10-19)
A.Buchanan: Thanks for comments, which I support. I think this is a difficult position to optimize for both forward and retro play. So Dawson has introduced several nice retro tries, and as a result the forward play is embarrassing. A good argument for YBZ's perspective! :)
Cant-ep is a good idea: I think it's quite rare in retro context because it's so easy to force. The convention is more normally used to protect non-retro problems from silly cooks. (2019-10-20)
