It looks anticipated:

Pity that evern such doublings get anticipatedf. Obviously so much has already been done in Proofgames.

3. dupont says:

Yes, especially for what is called “future proof games”. The above is symbolized as KP(S,s) & SW(K,k) where KP is the Prentos theme (Ceriani-Frolkin captured by an officer) – the analogy with helpmates of the future is clear – 4 tricks (in place of 4 solutions) going by pairs.

4. Ganapathi says:

Dear Dupont,
I would like to see an example of an analogous HOTF to understand what is meant by the “future games”

5. dupont says:

The analogy is purely formal. Numerous proof games are showing 4 tricks in an homogeneous way – 2 pieces of same type A perform theme X, and 2 pieces of same type B perform theme Y. Roberto Osorio decided (around 2008) to call them “future proof games” X(A,A) & Y(B,B).

Your entry above fullfills this definition in the bicolor setting – 2 Knights (S,s) perform the Prentos theme and 2 Kings (K,k) perform the switchback theme.

m…. so it is not at all “Future-proof” !

Thank you, Dupont
