  • (25.03) No.759Illo Krampis (h#3; Grasshopper, Berolina-Pawn). Light problem on the theme of Superproblem’s TT-131 (сyclic shift of guards). Warm welcome to Illo in Original problems section of JF! I’m happy to meet and introduce to you a new Latvian fairy composer!
  • (25.03) No.758Geoff Foster (h#2,5; Back-To-Back). A neutral King in a Back-To-Back problem!
  • (24.03) No.757Geoff Foster (h#2,5; Back-To-Back). Three nice mates by Back-To-Back neutral pair in a three-men problem!
  • (24.03) No.756Misha Shapiro (h#2; Gnu). Gnu-promotions + black pins after white Annihilation captures! Warm welcome to Misha in Original problems section of JF!
  • (23.03) No.754, 755Sébastien Luce – Non-standard implementation of castling in two different problems! No.754 (h#10.5; Black UltraSchachZwang); No.755 (h#2.5; Circe RexInclusive; Kamikaze RexInclusive; Duplex).
  • (22.03) No.753Julia Vysotska (h#2; Back-To-Back; Take & Make). Back-To-Back specific pin of the mating neutral piece! Hopefully, shown for the first time. 🙂 I should admit, that the solutions might look weird here and the interpretation of neutrals’ behavior with Back-To-Back can be a topic of some discussions. Myself, I find such interpretation reasonable.

Animated diagrams use Py2Web by Dmitri Turevski and WinChloe’s graphics.
