After learning the theme of this Problem-Echo TT I was immediately excited as I knew there are immense possibilities in h#2 with grasshoppers and nightriders. You can remember that CCM devoted to these many pages:

- h#2 with G and N 1,
- h#2 with G and N 2,
- h#2 with G and N 3,
- h#2 with G and N 4,
- h#2 with G and N 5,
- h#2 with G and N 6,
- h#2 with G and N 7,
- h#2 with G and N 8,
- h#2 with G and N 9.
- h#2 with G and N 10.

The problem shows creation of reciprocal batteries simply by capture of opposite unit half-pinned by rear piece. The double-check mate follows.

Personal rating:

The precise comment on content can be found nearby diagram. I was slightly disappointed to find out that this h#2 got only 2nd Comm within the bunch of 12 problems, while previous one got HM within another problems. In Problem-Echo tourneys the result depends on the level of marks given by judges, but I think 303 is better than 302.

Personal rating:

Rather simple helpmate, another example of undeserved HM.

Personal rating:

Surely one of my best fairy helpmates. The motivation is unusually rich, the power of all moves is very good. B1 twice indirectly unguards (by line closing as well as hurdle removal) and opens line for W1. B2 then moves bK into not yet formed mating net and W1 is triple antibattery mate. Strong ortho-diagonal correspondence. I can't understand why one of judges (Klaus Funk) objected so much against cookstopping Be1. I'm sure he didn't try to make the problem correct without him. Given position, it is the result of the very long fight for economy and against cooks. In fact, there is ONLY one cookstopper, wK (who should have been present anyway) stops cooks too.
