Pendulum movement of bishop


Just coming from the Die Schwalbe main page - http://www.dieschwalbe.de/

Fadil Abdurahmanović
1st Prize Die Schwalbe 2010
(= 2+12 )
h#6 (2+12)

1.Be6 Kd1 2.Qe5 Ke2 3.Kf5+ Kf3 4.Bb3 Bc4 5.f6 Bg8 6.Be6 Bh7#

The judge Hans Gruber praises the cooperation of bishops, especially the fact, that manoeuvre Be6-b3/Bf1-c4-g8/Bb3-e6 is preceded by another Bb3-e6.

The problem has instantly reminded me about another helpmate that I have actively solved 20 years ago as beginner:

Markus Manhart & Franz Pachl
3rd Prize Pat a Mat 1991-92
(= 6+6 )
h#4 (6+6)

1.Bxe4 g3 2.Ba8 Bb7 3.Kf5 Bg2 4.Be4 Bh3#

Of course, motivation of capture needed to clear line for wB is much, much easier than precise determination of arrival square of move Bb3-e6 by movement of wK.

I'm reminded of this one:

Josip Pernaric
The Problemist March 1994

(= 4+16 )

Helpmate in 4½

.... Bxh8
1.Ra1 Bxa1
2.Rh8 Bxh8
3.Qa1 Bxa1
4.Be7 Bxh3

Simple, but memorable!

Of course This Rehm classic is one of the 50 top helpmates selected by Ebert and Gruber for their wonderful book. That book is of course a must for any helpmate lover. Kindly made available by Ebert for free download at http://www.hilmar-ebert.de/
