Problem 261: Elmar Abdullayev - Helpmate

elmar(17.10.2013) Helpmate with interesting initial position which surprisingly I  have not found predecessor. Hope the problem is not anticipated. Welcome to Elmar Abdullayev from Azerbaijan.

I felt compelled to try. (That's what happens when Fancy/Popeye are a click away.)

Sf4 Sg4 Kh4 / Kf1 Bg1 Bh1
h#2
1.Bg1-h2 Sg4-e3+ 2.Kf1-g1 Sf4-h3#

Sf4 Sg4 Kh4 / Kf1 Sg1 Sh1
h#2
1.Sh1-g3 Sf4-d3 2.Sg3-e2 Sg4-e3#

Nothing fancy (merely popeye), of course.

Nice Adrian! In your position with all knights... shift g1 to h2.
Sf4 Sg4 Kh4 / Sh2 Sh1 Kf1 h#2*

Set Play: 1. ... Se3!
2. Kg1 Sh3#

1. Kg1 Kh3
2. Sf1 Se2#

Only drawback repeated Kg1 !

There just HAD to be a set play somewhere in there, with only knights... :-)

Indeed, it's strange that no precedents have been found. Such content was explored before the computer era. Just two examples:

I would be surprised if it not anticipated. I did not try to look for one. Just had some fun !
