Warm welcome to Kjell Widlert – a noted Swedish composer, editor of “Springaren” magazine and also the last time one of the best commentators on JF! Two problems by Kjell have an uncommon fairy conditions and minimal white material:

No.512 – ser-h#6 with Haan Chess (HaanerChess in Popeye);

No.513 – h#12 with Alphabetical Chess. (JV)


Haan Chess : Any square left can’t be neither occupied nor crossed.

Alphabetical Chess: The squares are considered in the order a1, a2…a8, b1…b8, c1 and so on to h8. At each turn, only the unit standing on the square which comes earliest in this order may move. However check and mate are normal.

    512: 2 ideal mates in the middle of the board that took me half a minute to solve but left an impression that will last forever!

    The idea of No.512 is shown in some Sentinelles problems.
