Henrik Juel: The intention may be 1.dxc3ep 2.Kxb5xc6-d7-e8 6.0-0 Rh8#, but -1.Kb2 seems possible. Should bBc1 be moved to a3? (2003-04-28)
GW: Yes, that's the solution, and the problem seems indeed to be cooked. I don't know if it has been corrected. (2003-04-28)
James Malcom: I believe that the intent was that the sLc1 must be the orginal one, and thus an impediment to wK foreplay, as the wBc6 "must" have captured the e7 Black pawn on its way from f2. The problem is that it can take the alternative path fxsLf3xDe3xTc5-c6, and there are enough White pieces to capture for the Black b pawn to make it d2 and for the d pawn to make it to c2. (2021-09-14)
James Malcom: It turns out this problem actually was corrected a long time later: P1012052 (2021-09-14)

Henrik Juel: The only possible last move is b2-b4, so the ep key is permissible
C+ Popeye 4.61 (2021-07-26)
A.Buchanan: The main idea is to unblock the cluttered 4th rank, and this is complemented thematically by *blocking* four other lines: g8-g4, h8-h4, h8-d4 & "blocking the blocker" h6-f4.
The last move was b2-b4, so by the ep rule, capture is definitely legal. The convention only serves to resolve ambiguous situations where multiple possible histories exist. In retro problems, such ambiguity is rare if the retro logic does its job. However the pessimistic nature of the e.p. convention motivates *why* the retro play must exist. (2021-07-26)

Henrik Juel: Solution: 1.a1S 2.fxg3ep 3.Kxh5xg6-f7-e8 7.0-0-0 a8Q#. Nice problem with open and hidden ep capture (exf3ep). (2003-04-28)
James Malcom: How is the key here justified? (2021-01-18)
James Malcom: I am still pondering. (2021-09-14)
Henrik Juel: James, I have forgotten all about this weird stipulation during the time since my last comment, and I don't know what I meant so say...
The definition of shc in the PDB is not complete; here is the Schwalbe definition:
Konsequenter Serienzüger: Ein Serienzüger, bei dem nach jedem Zug die Retroanalyse der Stellung neu durchgeführt wird (also ohne Kenntnis früherer Züge und Analysen). Beispielsweise wird eine Rochade wieder möglich, wenn König und Rochadeturm auf ihre entsprechenden Felder ziehen (weil in der neuen Analyse "vergessen" ist, dass beide bereits gezogen haben).
In english, something like
After each move the analysis of the position is done afresh, without knowledge of previous moves;
for instance, castling is possible when king and rook reach their original squares (e8 and a8), because it is 'forgotten' that they have already moved (2021-09-14)
Henrik Juel: You ask for a justification of the key, James; there is no need for justification, Black can do whatever he likes
In the position after 1.a1=S last move must have been g2-g4, so the ep capture 2.fxg3ep is legitimized
In the position after 2.fxg3ep last move must have been Ke3xPf3, with the double check being explained by exf3ep++; this is the 'hidden ep capture' I mentioned in my youthful comment (2021-09-14)
James Malcom: Thanks Henri! While the definition is incomplete, the reset each time is deducible from looking over shc problems. The justification here, however, was a level above me somehow. (2021-09-14)

Welches war die minimale Zahl aller Damenzüge?
Die unglaublich harte Bedingung (minimale Anzahl Damenzüge) bewirkt, dass die wDd1 nicht gezogen hat und die sDh4 eine UWF ist. Um die Stellung aufzulösen, müssen 2 weiße UW auf g8 zurückgenommen werden. Da dort nur Türme entwandelt werden können (Damen scheiden wegen der Bedingung aus!) darf die sDd7 zunächst nicht nach d8 zurückziehen.

A.Buchanan: Two queen moves is enough, as the animation shows. I agree white captures are hxg,axb,bxa/c. bBh promoted on h1, then moved to h4. bBh2 captured in from the left. Black pawn captures something like cxBdxexfxgxh,gxf,dxe. White abcB all promoted and at least one wB on g8. No need for a third D move as far as I can see. (2021-08-03)
Mario Richter: Hi Andrew - the main question is: How do you get the black king home?
In the solution given, after R: 7. a5xLb6 there is a black pawn on e5.
The position can only be unlocked by retracting wKe5-f5. Where exactly is the mentioned black pawn e5 at the moment wKe5-f5 is retracted? (2021-08-03)
A.Buchanan: Hi Mario, I was just responding to H-J's text assertion that 3 D moves are needed. A PG with 3 D moves could not prove that 2 are insufficient, and I find long unanimated PGs too tedious to read through sorry. I now think that the animation must be wrong, but I haven't convinced myself that no solution exists. I must work, but will have a go later. (2021-08-03)
A.Buchanan: OK - we can make sL on queenside and shift to kingside, and I can see that knights (or bishops) can't reach g8 to retract there, so it must be rooks along the 8th rank. So we can't retract the sDd7, and can't shift sTe6. But few Black tempi then. But this is not my kind of retro, and I will give up here. What's the answer: 2 or 3? (2021-08-03)
Mario Richter: My guess is, that the intended solution was 2 Queen moves, but that it it is impossible to get the black king home: R: sLf8, g7xf6 locks e8 from the right side, R: sDd8-d7, sBd7-d6 locks e8 from the left side (2021-08-03)
A.Buchanan: WinChloe has two earlier versions, and the composer was very experienced (200+ retros just in PDB) but I have now looked enough to think this is cooked. Even if we shift sBa forward 2 squares to give us a couple more moves, then all goes well shifting sL & wT to kingside, but we reach a point where sBc7xwBd6, with still sBd5, so the two pawns are the wrong side of one another. What does Rawbats think? (2021-08-04)
Mario Richter: Perhaps it suffices to say what I think?!
With bPa2 instead of a5 it is easy to reach the position with 2 queen moves only:
1. retract R: 1. Te1-f1 g3xSh2 2. Sf1-h2+
2. retract d6xSe5(or d6xTe5)xSf4xBauer_g3 while W makes tempo moves e.g. with wLg1
3. unpromote the S or Te5 on b8 and retract the wPawn to b6, while bPawn a2 retracts to a6
4. uncapture a5xLb6 - now there is no time pressure
5. unpromote wS on c8 and retract the wPawn to c6
6. retract c7xBauer_d6(!)
[this idea was inspired by the question, how the situation mentioned in your comment "we reach a point where sBc7xwBd6, with still sBd5", can be avoided]
7. retract wPawn_d6 to e.g. d3 (but not d2)
8. retract d5xTe4
9. bring wT to g8, sL to f8
10. retract g7-g8=T Dd8-d7 g6-g7 g7xSf6 (or Tf6)
11. unpromote wS or wT on a8
12. the rest is easy to see

Since the author wanted to show a certain combination of C-F-pieces, the above mentioned choices in the uncapture of white pieces still make the modified version of the problem cooked, even if with bPa2 2 Queen-moves suffice.

Zolotarev used the matrix of this problem a lot, search the PDB with
A='Zolotarev' AND G='Retro' AND POSITION='wKf5 sKf3'

And yes, the Composer may be "very experienced" as you put it, but he was also very productive regarding cooks, check e.g. https://www.dieschwalbe.de/ergaenzungena2.htm ...

And one more mysterium: the Retro Corner gives 3 Queen-moves as the solution, s. https://www.janko.at/Retros/Schwalbe/Solutions.htm#9576 (2021-08-05)

Vor Kf7-e8 geschah Bg6xh7, deshalb muß zuerst einer der sB durch Umwandlung eliminiert werden.

In der Diagrammstellung haben die Bauern jeweils alle fehlenden gegnerischen Steine geschlagen:
W: Bdxexfxgxh, Baxbxa (oder Bcxbxa)
S: Bfxg, Bdxcxb, Bexdxcxb, Bbxa

Nach 1. Kf7? oder 1. Kf8 2. Kg7 3. Kg6 hätte W jeweils keinen letzten Zug. (R: h3-h4 sperrt den Th1 aus, der aber auch zu den Schlagopfern der sBB gehörte).
Also muß im Vorwärtsspiel zunächst eine Stellung mit geänderter Schlagbilanz erreicht werden.
Der Versuch 1. Kf8 2.Kg8 3. Kxh7 4. Kg6 5. Kh5 6. Kxh4? - aber nun hat W keinen letzten Zug - zeigt, daß der wBh7 erhalten bleiben muß, also muß die virtuelle Rücknahme h2,h3-h4 ermöglicht werden. Dies geschieht durch "Elimination" des Bc7, indem dieser auf c1 umwandelt. Bei einem sUW-Lc1 würden weiterhin 7 sBB-Schläge erforderlich sein, sUW-Dc1 oder sUW-Tc1 böten Schach, sodaß nur ein sUW-Sc1 übrig bleibt.
Nach 1. c5 2. c4 3. c3 4. c2 5. c1=S 6. Kf7 hat W nun h2,h3-h4 als Rücknahmemöglichkeit, weil nun der wTh1 nicht mehr notwendig als Schlagobjekt benötigt wird.
Henrik Juel (PDB 2021-09-15): This is one of the few shc#'s without ep capture and/or castling
Henrik Juel: I don't agree entirely with you comment, James; this seems clearer:
1.Kf7? does not work, because now White has no last move ([Th1] was captured by a pawn)
1.Kf8 2.Kg7 3.Kg6? fails for the same reason
After 5.c1=S 6.Kf7 last move was h3-h4 or h2-h4
This is one of the few shc#'s without ep capture and/or castling (2021-09-15)
James Malcom: Henrik, what comment of mine? I merely edit swapped some text. (2021-09-15)
Henrik Juel: OK, so it was probably Gerd who wrote it in 1998; the early updates are no longer available, when you click on 'more...'
The german text roughly translates to:
Pg6xh7 happened before Kf7-e8, so first one of the black pawns must be eliminated by promotion.
I still like my comment better... (2021-09-15)

Mit dieser Aufgabe hat BoL vermutlich erstmals den Begriff der ZeroPosition eingeführt. Hier zeigt die Verwendung der ZeroPosition auch thematische Geschlossenheit insofern, als bei Versetzung des wS auch UW in S erfolgt, bei wT auch UW in T etc. Es besteht also ein Zusammenhang versetzte Figur zu Umwandlung (eb).

Aber nach 11. Lh1 kann Weiß auch g2xLh3 zurücknehmen!
Cook: gxsLh3!
Henrik Juel: 1.d5-d4-d3-d2-d1B-b3xa2-c4-f1 10.Bg2-h1 12.fxg3ep+?? fxg3# seems to fail, because after 11.Bh1 last move could be g2xh3. So what is the solution? (2003-04-28)
Thierry LE GLEUHER: After 11.Bh1, the last move can't be g2xh3 because of the promoted Bishop h1 imcompatible with the bP structure! (2005-09-25)
Henrik Juel: Why couldn't Black have a promoted bishop at this point in time (where wPa2 and bPd7 are no longer present)? 12 captures by black pawns seem to match the 12 missing white men. (2005-09-26)
Joost de Heer: Besides, after g2-g4, the black bishop must've been promoted too. (2005-09-30)
James Malcom: Henrik, gxh3 is indeed impossible. The last move sequence must go something like 1. Kfg8 Se2+ 2. Kh2 Sg1. There cannot be a knight on h3, cutting off g8, or a queen/rook, cutting off h2. Thus, gxh3 has already been played and g2-g4 is the last move. (2021-09-14)
Mario Richter: Position after 11. Lh1 is 8/5p2/8/5ppp/5pPk/5p1P/5P1K/6nb.
It can be easily shown, that in this position g2xLh3! is indeed a legal retraction.
So the ep-capture is not justified and the problem is cooked!
(Perhaps Thierry forgot, that black pawn d7 "disappeared"? But Joost's argument raises [correctly] the question, why a promoted Bishop on h1 is ok for g2-g4, but not for g2xLh3.) (2021-09-15)
Henrik Juel: So the good guys (Mario, Joost, and me) win over the bad ones (Thierry and James) by 3-2... (2021-09-15)
Henrik Juel: or, less insultingly:
By a majority of 3 to 2 this problem has been deemed cooked (2021-09-15)

Die Satzmatts zeigen die Blockform des Thema E, die Spielmatts dagegen die Normalform des Thema E. Erstdarstellung? fragt der Autor. Leider nicht, denn Udo Degener fand eine Aufgabe mit derselben Thematik (s. Diagramm): Nichtsdestotrotz kam die Aufgabe sehr gut an. Doppelsetzung von Thema E1 mit denselben Themafeldern (d5+f6); eine grandiose Aufgabe (MS). Glänzender Themenwechsel bei den schwarzen Paraden, bei guter Konstruktion. Eine kleine Schwäche ist das satzmattlose L:c6, das die Lösung erleichtert. Dennoch bestes Problem der Serie (MO).

Systemverlagerung, Siers-Batterie, Liniensperrung (Autor). - Weglenkung des sS unter ständiger Beschäftigungslenkung; alle Elemente sind einzeln bekannt, insgesamt gesehen aber immer noch erfrischend in bester logisch-neudeutscher Tradition (KHS). Der recht hübsche Hauptplan muß durch Weglenkung des Sf2 abgesichert werden. Für diese einfache Strategie ist der Materialaufwand viel zu groß (MOe: 2/I-II). Zusammenfassung: "Auswahl hat mir gefallen" (KHS).

En bichromatique la légalité de la position ne pose pas de problème : pas de Fou en dehors de la case de départ ou de la ligne de promotion, ni de pion s doublés ou croisés. En monochromatique : Les B ont joué Tb3-d3+, mais il faut aussi justifier la position des Pions.Le Pf3 n'a pris ni la Dame, ni un Fc8 ni un Cavalier, ni Ta8 qui n'a pu venir sur la 3° rangée, il a donc pris un Pion.Compte tenu du Pc2, cela suppose 5 prises sur case blanches par PN : la D, le Ff1 et 2 pions seulement puisqu'il reste les Pf3 et d7. La Ta1 n'a pu être prise puisqu'elle se trouve en d4. La 5° prise s'explique par la capture d'un Pion sur case noire par prise en passant sur d3.

Original ohne wBb2, mit wKb1 und sLa3 veröffentlicht, dann aber NL 1. bxc3ep, weil danach W als letzten Zug Kc2-b1 hatte.
In der korrigierten Stellung (03/1988, S.400) hat W nach bxc3ep nie einen letzten Zug, so daß dieser ep-Schlag erst am Ende der Lösung gespielt werden darf.

Außerdem bietet der Autor noch einen Zwilling an: Ks a5/a4, zusätzlich Monchromes Schach, shc#6

(The germsn comment above reads: Originally published without white pawn b2, with wKb1 and black Bishop a3. But then cooked by 1. bxc3ep, because W has Kc2-b1 as last move [preceeded by c4xb3+]) (2021-09-16)

The interest here is in the try 5. h1=T? 6. Th8, when, in a game to that position, the sK or sT must have moved to let out Ta8 to be captured (0-0?). The solution is a surprise, involving castling round the cylinder instead.

A.C.White: "LOYD lived up to his profession that others were welcome to reproduce and improve his themes better than some writers are wont to do.
There are dozens of instances on record where his problems closely anticipate later work by other composers, but I have seldom found that he made any objection thereto. On the whole I think he had a certain feeling of pride that others should follow in his footsteps twenty or fifty years after him. More than once I have shown him versions by distinguished modern composers, and he would laugh and say: " Has So-and-so really just published that ? Why, I made it when I was eighteen." It is impossible to refer to all these cases in such a book as this. No. 273 is a single striking instance among many, which I discussed at some length in the British Chess Magazine for February, 1910."

Nachdruck im 'Fargo forum' schreibt den Autornamen durchgängig falsch als "McKenzie" und merkt an: "Problem No. 3 is by the blind composer, A. F. McKenzie, and was published as problem No. 1 in Pulitzer's magazine. It is an illustration of the purity theme, in fact it contains at least fourteen pure mates, possibly the greatest number that can be produced in a problem of two moves." [Das 'Pulitzer's Magazine' hatte mit seiner Erstausgabe im Oktober 1913 auch eine neue Schachrubrik unter der Leitung von Herman Helms eingeführt.]
