A.Buchanan: We can +wBd2, but then need to e.g. transpose wLg7 & wBg5, otherwise the wBB are impossibly concentrated in corner. Then I think it's sound. (2021-10-08)

WinChloe has same diagram, also says is cooked.
Henrik Juel: Black is missing [Lc8], which was captured on c8, and a rook
Last move was not c3xTb4, because sTc4's check is impossible, so White has the move (2020-10-01)
A.Buchanan: Shifting sLd6 to c5 removes the cooks. What's the artistic intent here though? (2021-10-16)
Henrik Juel: Maybe the unique h#2 try plays a role: 1.Le5 b6 2.d6 Lxg2# (2021-10-16)
A.Buchanan: In the h#2 try, b5-b6 is cool as the sole tempo move available to White. However there are plenty of *pairs* of White moves e.g. Sxd1-f2, which lose two tempi. These lead directly to h#2.5 cooks, and I see no way to eliminate these without losing the h#2 try. (2021-10-17)

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).

Weiß darf den Schnittpunkt e6 nicht überschreiten und muß gleichzeitig die c-Linie freihalten, also Angriff 3. Grades gegen Verteidigung 2. Grades. Ausgezeichnete Miniatur (MOe). Ansprechende Kleinkunst (PG). Vorsuppe mit wenig Kalorien! Man löffelt's mit (FH).

(J. Quack). Weiß muß die Reihenfolge seiner Manöver genau abwägen. 1.T:g2? gefolgt von 2.Lb4 (droht 3.b7+ Kc7 4.La5+ T:a5#) scheitert an 1.- Thg5! Deshalb 1.Lb4!

Wenn man sich von den 2 Vs tatsächlich modernes Wechselspiel erhoffte, muß man sich mit der verhältnismäßig schlichten Thematik gehäufter Brennpunkte erst einmal anfreunden. Bei der Art und Weise, wie die dritte Brennpunktbesetzung als Block in einem unvorhergesehenen Mattbild genutzt wird, fällt das dann aber schließlich gar nicht so schwer (MR). GEOlogie der großen Kleinkunst aus GEOrgien - immer wieder mit interessanten Edelsteinfunden! Glückwunsch zur Ankunft... (FH).

Angesichts zweier satzmattloser Königsfluchten ist das Satzspiel 1.- Td4 wohl eher ein Scherz, zumal das drohende 1.- Kf4 den Schlüssel zur Selbstverständlichkeit macht (EZ). Das Satzspiel steht auf schwachen Füßen: 1.- Kf6 soll man sehen, 1.- Kd4 und 1.- Kf4 dagegen nicht. Nach 1.- f4 tritt kein Wechsel ein (Dr. HS). Illustration zum Beresina-Debakel 1812: mit übermächtigen Batterien (FH)!

Diese Aufgabe ist der thematische Höhepunkt der Serie. Ein kompletter 4x4-Lacný!
Fazit: KHS: Ein abwechslungsreiches Angebot!
WW: Eine vortrefflich wild gemischte und sehr schwierige Serie. Nichtsdestotrotz, wie es heißt: mehr davon (auch wenn man nicht alles zu lösen vermag). Früher habe ich mich über die Probleme geärgert, die ich nicht lösen konnte, jetzt ärgere ich mich über die, die sich zu schnell (Computer) lösen lassen. [GES: da hat sich ja einer geoutet!]
Alfred Pfeiffer: Der Schlüsselzug 1. sPAb3-d3! ist nicht regelgerecht. Die siamesischen Steine müssen gleich lange Züge ausführen, z.B. sPAb3-f3 (2021-10-13)

Funktionswechsel der weißen Türme in lockerer Stellung, dazu zahlreiche, nicht leicht zu widerlegende Verführungen (Dr. KHS). Gefälliges Verführungsstück, bei dem man tatsächlich zunächst einmal alles durchprobiert, bevor der richtige Schlüsselzug gefunden ist (HJ). Die Widerlegungen fast aller Verführungen sind zu offensichtlich, den Schlüssel habe ich sofort gesehen (Dr. ,HS).

Droh-Reversal (2 x), Mattwechsel, Meredith (Autor). Gelobt wurden hier hauptsächlich die Mattwechsel nach 1.- T:d3. Dr. H. Selb findet die Widerlegungen zu offensichtlich, und das fehlende Satzmatt nach 1.- L:a6 läßt 1.c4 unglaubwürdig erscheinen. Für A. Witt ist dies pointierte Kleinkunst, für H. Reddmann Mattwechsel auf T:d3, sonst nix und E. Zierke stellt fest, daß die Notwendigkeit, den wL nach d1 zu bringen, dem Löser nicht viel Auswahl zuläßt. F. Hoffmann schließlich gibt dieser anspruchslosen Meredith-Melodie zum Mitsummen keine Chancen beim Grand-Prix.

"Add the 16 black units so that no piece is attacked."
Alain Brobecker: One way to correct this would be to move WRf1 to h1 and WNd1 to f1 ( B4RK1/1N6/5B2/2P5/1P1P4/P3PP1P/3Q2P1/5N1R ) , solution would then be B4RK1/nNbq4/r1p1pBpr/1pPp1p1p/pP1P4/Pb2PP1P/3Q2P1/nk3N1R (2021-09-21)

Laut 'Simple Two-move Themes' ist die Originalquelle "Deutsches Wochenschach, Dec. 3, 1899", was aber offensichtlich wegen des früheren Veröffentlichungstermins in 'Austrum' nicht stimmen kann.
Die Information "after B.M. Neill 1881" stammt auch aus 'Simple Two-move Themes'.

Hier Dreizüger-Thema B2, Ausschreibung 2. WCCT 1980: Im ersten Zug wird Schwarz gezwungen,
eine gefesselte s. Figur D,T,S,L (nicht B) zu behindern (Verstellung oder Block auf
einem Feld). Dies ermöglicht Weiß die Entfesselung der s. Figur durch einen s t i l l e n
zweiten Zug seiner fesselnden Figur (also direkte Entfesselung).

Changing Fashions: "This 3-er stands out as a memorable among the problems of Hume's first period. It is a waiting move affair, almost a complete block, only 1. ... Tg7 being unprovided for. The opposition play of the two Rooks, now familiar, was entirely new at the date when the problem won its prize, and the economical presentation gave it an immediate popularity which it has always retained.
