About the logical structure of this problem, Grossmeister Hans Peter writes this:
"Das ist eine der ersten Aufgaben, in denen eine Weisse Vorplankombination von Schwarz durch eine Lenkung entschaerft wird, worauf diese Entschaerfung durch einen weiteren Vorplan von Weiss entschaerft wird"

Too sneaky and convoluted, I like the 'monorail' better....
Of course I saw the main line right away , but did not get the deep threat of the key -since it is so different from the main clerical play.
H-PM is really good in this sort of baffling lines.

Hey mrmip, I am happy you enjoyed last HPR!
Logic and magic go hand in hand to produce unexpected wonders.
Here is another one, don't forget to 'think it thru deep enough'

Wow! Cannot believe I solved this on first try under 15 minutes
Perhaps I am beginning to understand HPR's style. You just think it thru deep enough. Well, I guess that's why they are called _Logical_ problems

It sure is a tricky problem!! Me too I could not see the refutation to 1.Bd4... which would make it a mate in 5! . So I thought maybe the diagram was incorrect until I checked soundness with computer.
Actually the problem looks like an elaboration on a mate in 5 (remove g2,h1...) Very witty idea

Really, really sneaky one, Papa
I, for one , fell to 1.Bd4 and could not see the defence

The way c8 gets covered is well hidden. I just this.

The Roman manoeuvre can also be used by Black to refute a White try, this is called "White Roman".
Here we see both White and Black Romans (well, sort of...).

Gorgeous Georgians!
Four pieces dancing together on a 4/4 tempo in the first position and very nice Roman Perilenkung (peri-decoy?) of the rook in the second study, obtained by a king walk alone. Very beautiful works of art.


Here we see a Roman Perilenkung that achieves two aims
