Motto: The captive King
Frank Müller: Wahrscheinlich sollte die in Philadelphia erschienene Quelle "The Chess Record" sein. Wer weiß genaueres zum Thema "Philadelphia Record" und "(The) Chess Record" ?

Ach, und kann das mal einer lösen? (2018-03-10)
Mario Richter: Ich denke auch, daß es sich bei der Quelle um 'The Chess Record' handelt.
Aus dem Buch 'Chess in Philadelphia' (zu finden z.B. bei archive.org oder books.google.com): "The Chess Record started in April [1873] as an independent publication, but merged in November with the Philadelphia Intelligencer. Published by George C. Helmbold. Edited by G. Reichhelm and afterwards W. H. Sayen ..."

Könnte der Lösungsmechanismus ähnlich wie bei P1086725 fuktionieren? :-) (2018-03-10)
Olaf Jenkner: Der Cook scheint bis zum 43. Zug der Autorlösung zu folgen.
Nach 44. ... g5? wird es schneller matt. (2018-03-11)
Frank Müller: Habe die Quelle nun von Philadelphia Record in The Chess Record geändert. (2018-03-11)
msterkowiec: It seems that it is even #57. After 4...d3 there is 5.Q:g7 (#34 in total)
2... g6 or 2...h6 look better
Main variant may look like this (but there are several duals there) :
1. Qc4 Kb6 2. Qd5 h6 3. Qc4 Ka5 4. Qb3 d3 5. Qc4 Kb6 6. Qd5 g6 7. Qc4 Ka5 8. Qb3 f5 9. Qc4 Kb6 10. Qd5 h5 11. Qc4 Ka5 12. Qb3 h4 13. Qc4 Kb6 14. Qd5 h3 15. Qc4 Ka5 16. Qb3 f4 17. Qc4 Kb6 18.

msterkowiec: Actually there are precalculated data available for this type of position - they are included within installation of a free program that can be downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CjYhj3F2FXUuXUDe3OPILxfIVU8EFlNu/view?usp=sharing - however this piece of software is mainly in Polish, anyway it still might be usable based on this short information: https://i.ibb.co/7yTqp0G/manual.png

It is still only Polish because it was originally intended for my son who was 7 years old at this time; secondly because of relatively small interest (it has been for quite a long time available through this Polish chess forum: http://szachowe.pl/viewtopic.php?f=18&p=113611&sid=820c3eca01d996c6665b614cf85d3149#p113611 )
Please let me know... making English version (or "switchable") shouldn't take more that 2-3 days.

BTW: Program contains option not to use precalculated data: in case of this problem program still reports #57 (though it takes about 15 minutes in such case, while precalculated data show solution immediately) (2020-01-12)
