1. Main plan: 1.e4+ fxe3
2. Obstacle: Bxf3
3. Safeguarding plan aims at stopping B attacking R: 1.Bh1! and threat is 2.Qa1 bxc6 3.Rb2 … 7.Rg2+.
4. After 1.Bh1! bxc6 2.Qa1? we have the second (new) obstacle: Q stalemates bK. It is removed by keeping-busy (tempo) plan: 2.Qa7-3.Qa1+
5. So, it’s a problem with nested foreplans (type II problem).
6. Old-school term "relativ zweckrein" is used for problems with obstacles in parallel (type I problems).

Clear solution, pure aims.

Great problem. Great story. Not quite sure I agree about Roxette, though.

This marvelous problem sounds rather like Dire Straits while Gamnitzer's masterpieces have the Zappa sound. Maybe I'm a synesthete or even wrong.

Now the award was released in the current issue of "Die Schwalbe".
This problem got the 2. honorable mention, four problems were ranked higher.

I think that Gamnitzer's masterpieces are not a historical German school, but an original Austrian school. This will soon be published in the journal Chess composition.

Are the awards of other Die Schwalbe informal tourneys available on their website? I would be very interested to see awards of fairy tourneys, for example.
