The $100 Theme in a PG-done!


I came across this amazing PG today:https://pdb.dieschwalbe.de/P0008565. It features the $100 theme!

Unto Heinonen, Thema Danicum 1996, 3rd Honorable Mention
PG in 19.5
(= 12+12 )

1. Nc3 Nf6 2. Ne4 Nxe4 3. b4 Nxf2 4. e4 h5 5. Qxh5 Rxh5 6. Ne2 Rc5 7. Ng3 d5 8. Be2 Bd7 9. O-O Nd3 10. Rxf7 Nxc1 11. Rxg7 Nb3 12. Rg6 Kf7 13. axb3 Be8 14. Ra5 Qd7 15. Rb5 a5 16. h4 a4 17. h5 a3 18. h6 a2 19. h7 a1=N 20. h8=N#

I just felt like sharing this today. :-)

I think you have the wrong diagram, James?

Of course the helpmate version is a different order of challenge from a proof game, but still the tag is good.

When we clear out a lot of the overlapping keywords from the glossary we will have space to explore some new ones. “Checkmate” for a proof game is interesting, and not entirely a positive for a proof game, in that it constrains the last move. And there could be a kind of “Prentos” Nix, where the original officer is captured by an officer, like wS here, rather than a pawn, like bS here. I think we should aim eventually for all keywords to be populated automatically from the solutions, as much as possible.

At that point it becomes natural to have non-thematic keywords, like castling here.

The diagram is now fixed.
