The power of persuasion


(= 7+9 )

There was this problem by Enzo Minerva, The Problemist Supplement 11/2009,
asking for the number of 1#. The solution, I bet, was 8: remove one black pawn
since the structure is illegal. I solved in five seconds and thus
joined the mass hallucination: remove f5/d5 and it is STILL illegal.
(At least the editor must have fallen for it too!)
Was this ever corrected? Am I right with my interpretation anyway?

You missed the rook on d1. Just have a look in the Problemist Supplement - available on the BCPS website - and you'll find that the problem was published in the September issue, sent in on April 1st (!) and the solution - which is not 8 - revealed in the November issue.

Ah, THX. So the guy was intentionally playing silly bugger
with rash dudes like me. Remember me to shoot him occasionally :-)

Hauke, shame-red
