Kingston 1997 6h Quick Composing

Another mystery.

(= 5+3 )

2#, Peter Bakker, K6h, hon comm

This (or something else!) inspired me to my 2001 diagonal version SCHWALBE 11115 ...but there "after N.G.G. van Dijk" is listed which agrees with my memory. Of course I can't fight through all 1624 (minus the other guy :-) problems on the Albrecht, and an added "MatthäufungD5" gives nothing at all. Anyone with an idea which problem is meant?

P.S. <bitching mode> C'mon, 6 hours for composing?
I did the following in 6 minutes, and I could swear I even did the theme
in triplicate with some promotion trick (but can't find it anymore...or maybe
it was a zero position):
(= 8+3 )

Something went wrong with the copy/paste of the link. I meant this one: (which is the one Geoff also posted)

Peter Bakker is special because of four Q mates on the same line.

It looks too me that there are 5 and not 4 WQ mates on the same line (b5-c5-d5-e5-f5). Unless I am missing something?

Nope, you counted right - five Q mates on a line, which was also the formal tourney
stipulation. (The van Dijk has 7 - no wonder I didn't find it!)
But now Geoff/Joost just increased the mystery: this is the first time
I see the van Dijk problem. It was definitely not my inspiration, selfsame
inspiration looking more like half of my double rendering. <shrug> A nice problem
and also a nice to have for my unending list of comparison stuff, but not
*that* much of an anticipation (given that the 7 Q mates are "scattered" -
which makes for a much more impressing rendering on the "technical" side,
also 7, !!, but mine is more funny :-).
Bother, now I have to find the Schwalbe article about Kingston after all
(I already found one, but that didn't list the Bakker or any at all...) -
if it was the Schwalbe.

Could it be with four queen mates?

Nope, Joost, that one I already dug up "en passant" myself :-)
Still, makes a nice addition to the thread.
