b) 1.Bf5 Re5 2.Re4 Bd1#

Rather big traffic on e4 square. Analogy is spoilt by opening by white rook for white bishop, construction is not very good too and twin by moving the black king is simplyfying a lot.

Personal rating: D.

Cyclic change of white 1st and 2nd moves after the same black defences - today well known Kiss theme. In 1994 I was under strong influence of Peter Gvozdjak, who encouraged me to produce such a cyclic shifts. Known mechanism of capture-nocapture I extended to 3 moves and added reciprocal change of 3rd white moves. Later I used this mechanism also for better achievements.

Again Kiss theme. This patrol-chess mechanism was first presented by Yves Cheylan in Kiss Theme Tourney organized by Pat a Mat. I invented it before I knew Cheylan's work, but I cannot claim I am an inventor of it. But later I went further and extended it to 4-fold Kiss theme, that's why I like this my work.

Echo of model mate with use of grasshoppers. Motivated by lecture given by Jiri Jelinek in Bratislava 1993. He pointed that echo selfmates are almost unexplored and recommended people to compose them. I tried but I failed to finish it as selfmate so I switched to semireflex mate. Also construction is not very light...

Kiss theme with a very patrol-chess motivation - white halfpin, patrol covering of c5. Heavy construction and confusing by-variations didn't allow judge (Hans Peter Rehm) to place composition higher in tourney. Pity I didn't spend more time on constructing.

Complicated combination of modern twomover themes based on line combinations to squares d6, c4. I found scheme, sent it to HPR, he sent me back some improvement I worked further and he finished it. Bannyj in tries, pseudo LeGrand between non-checking tries and Dombrovskis in solution.

And yes, yes, yes... It is the very first problem of mine that made it into Album FIDE!!! It was Album FIDE 1992-1994 and it is the only my problem that went through the selection made by renowned judges. I was slightly disappointed to discover that my h#2 from Wola Gulowska hadn't so much luck... but my personal wish to enter Album with at least one problem was satisfied. I hope to do much better in 1995-1997 period.

Personal rating: A (upgraded from B).

Black king is catched on 2 squares and all white must do is to capture bSh6 with king. But it turns out that (1.Kh5? Kh7!) white must loose tempo somewhere... It is possible only in triangle a6-a7-b7, so he must go with his king for a long journey: 1.Kh3 Kh7 2.Kh2 Kh8 ... 14.Ka7 (Kb7) Kh8 15.Kb7 (Ka7) Kh7 16.Ka6 ... 30.Kh5! d4! (and again until black makes all available pawn moves) 339.Kh4 Kh7 340.Kh5 Kh8 341.Kxh6#.

Durbar (white makes all moves with king), very mechanical, with duals, but very long.

Personal rating: C.

Notes: 697 Sent: 61

Intention: White can mate only by knight or by wazir when Qa1 is removed as Rh2 quards h6 forever. In the course of solution it turns out that the knight will be the mating unit. White must step-by-step remove black guarding pieces and he must avoid selfparalyzing: 1.Wc6 ... 19.Wxb1(Bc8) ... 39.Wxb7(Ra8) 40.Wxa7(Bf8) ... 62.Wxa1(Qd8) 63.Wxa2 ... 85.Wxa6 ... 87.Sf6#

Circe-motivated pendling of wazir, unfortunately cooked in 8 moves (!!): 1.Wc6 ... 8.Wh6#!! as rook h2 in fact don't guard h6 (8...Rxh6(Wh8)??). Again something very frustrating for poor author. Later corrected by Paul Raican.
