1.Ke7 Ge8 2.Kd7 Gc6 3.Kc8 Gc7#

1.Kg5 Gh6 2.Kf6 Ge6 3.Kxe6(Gc8) Ge5#

4-fold echo of fairy mate. Fourth solution with very different way of reaching the mate was easy to avoid, but I think it freshens the problem and 4-fold echo is nice achievement.

Personal rating: B.

Unfortunately, this one was misprinted in magazine, condition Circe was missing.

h#3 (2+1)
2+0 grasshopper, transmuting king f6

Far echo in near corners - I hope it is precise and correct description :-) Use of lion instead of grasshopper is justified by existence of cook caused by grasshopper weaknesses (lion is much stronger animal in real life too).

Personal rating: B.

h#6,5 (2+2)
nightrider-hopper d4, lion e8

8th HM 1st TT Variant Chess C 31.12.1997
Notes: 810 Sent: 189

1st TT Variant chess asked for any kind of chess problems having at most 2 pieces on board. Many interesting ideas appeared in tourney and I was happy to obtain 2nd Prize and some other distinctions. On the other hand I was slightly disappointed by relatively low placing of present retro:

Retract 1.Kg2-h1 Ke2xRe1(Ke8), then 1.Kf2 Re8#

You may consider this retractor to be only simple puzzle, but I like it very much. Not forgetting about long time needed to find right position for all pieces, you can see "model middle-board Anticirce specific battery mate". Pretty unexpected, eh?

Personal rating: A.

White and black retract one move for h#1 (1+1)

Four corners echo. It is also nice, as judge Stephen Emmerson pointed, that twins are done in regular way and their symmetry (rectangle of 4 starting positions of RL) is in asymmetric way transformed into symmetry of final positions.

Personal rating: B.
