Some introduction by the Author:

This problem has some background.
In the “ Bulletin” 7/2015 an article “Wenigsteiner in Proca Retractor AntiCirce” was published by Vlaicu Crişan and Eric Huber. The article ended with a call to break the record achieved by Paul Rãican (-18 & # 1). Three months later, a problem by Alex Levit (-19 & # 1) appeared on JF.
Seeing the problem, I immediately realized that it was a new record. Therefore, the first comment on JF wasn’t unexpected. However, the second comment came as a surprise. It turned out that the new record (-21 & # 1) had moved to Problem Paradise. The next surprise was waiting for me when reading the materials of the Wenigsteinerjahrespreis competition for 2016.
The new record (-23 & # 1) by the same author was published in the next issue of PP.
I have long wanted to return the record to JF. I hope that my task is correct and that I succeeded.

And also the hint for solving – the solution includes the following moves:
3.Ke1×Rd1(+wKe1), 9.Ke4×Bf4(+wKe1), 13.Ke3×Pf4(+wKe1), 17.Kh3×Bg4(+wKe1), 33.Kf7×Qe8(+wKe1)

An incredible achievement! I could not even imagine that such a complicated play with 13 (!) uncaptures is possible in Wenigsteiner Proca.

Could this be a cook?
