    Well done Bernd! Indeed with a so tricky move order, it would have been very risky to publish this PG without Jacobi’s positive verdict!

    One Pawn can be saved, with reversed colors, I think: 1.c3! e5 2.c4 Ke7 3.c5 Sh6 4.Sf3 e4 5.c6 exf3 6.cxb7 fxg2 7.bxa8=S! gxh1=K! 8.Sxc7 Kxh2 9.Sd5 Ke8 10.Sf4 Kh3 11.Sxh3 Sg8 12.Sg1.
    For the moment, I checked only the last 10.5 moves with Jacobi.
