But how the black can be stalemated after 13.h1R? Can you give us other moves too?

12. g:h2 13. h1R 14.h6 15.h:g5 17.g3 19.Rg4 20.Bh4 21.g5! any ! The moves are interchangeable of course.

So the version with movement of wR on h5,h4... etc. on the initial possition is useless...

In the partial computer check the problem was C+, but with the strict addition bPg3 to not move...

It does not solve in 15 moves, as white pawn f2 has to be removed for black to be stalemated (h6 pawn finally reaches g3). Black bishop cannot come through g5 shortcut to f2, because without WPg5 BPh6 cannot reach g3. So the cook is 22 moves long. Moving the white rook h2 to h3/h4 will produce other cooks. So it should be at h5 (allowing the black g6 pawn a capture to avoid cooks).

Ofcourse some moves can be in not the same order, but you got the point.

Sorry. You are right Diyan. I was still thinking on the lines of 1.g:h2 :( . Hope Mr.Anton can think of some way out.
