A convincing mechanism.
Only the mating move of the 1st solution still needs the condition. the one of the 2nd is orthodox. Shouldn’t there be a hint that there are two solutions?

What is meant by “Feather’s mechanism” here?

It could mean ‘take a step back for a better jump’!

I’ve understood that but where’s a Feather’s mechanism?

There is no ‘Feather mecanism’ but a mechanism used by Chris on F45-4

Oh, thanks for the clarifying reference Pierre. I didn’t know about F45-4.

However, I did know about ‘reculer pour mieux sauter’. I had the idea of a “retreat for a runup for the jump” or “pulling a bowstring”, for http://www.yacpdb.org/#329804

Thanks Seetharaman, Andrew and Pierre, I made it in year 2000 and published it almost 5 years later, I can’t remember why such a delay.

However, I didn’t want to show it as “my problem”, but to show the different aspects of a content, of a theme and of a pattern.
It would be interesting to analyze and discuss it.

Pierre has created a complex thematic pattern by using a simple play.
I have created a complex play to achieve an illusion of a simple pattern.

And thanks Geoff!
Obviously, it’s proper to talk about the problem by Vladimirov & Ivanovsky. I’ve seen some partial anticipations of the line-play, but nothing close to such a complete precedent.
