From TT Director Aleksey Oganesjan I received 105 problems in anonymous form. Among my criteria of evaluation there are a theme, a harmony, a technique and an aesthetics. I paid special attention to problems with twins that are cannot formed via the only shifting, i. e. with twins “corresponding to” castling or promotion.

Special Prize - No 35, Anatoly Vasilenko & Andrey Frolkin (Author), dedicated to the 60th birthday Mark Basisty 1qnbk2r/P1np3p/p6P/p2p3p/8/3P2pr/1P1PbPP1/5RK1

a) diagram:
1.0-0 fxg3 2.Kh8 Rxf8# (model mate)
Black balance: 15 (pieces on the board) + 1 (cxd or exd) = 16.
White balance: 9 + 6 (a7xb6xa5, b7xa6, cxd or exd, fxg, g6xh5) + 1 (Bc1) = 16.
Either the white e-pawn was promoted on e8 and the black c-pawn on c1 or the black e-pawn was promoted on e1 and the white c-pawn on c8. White has just played R~-f1. One of the castlings is illegal.
It is impossible to prove that Black has lost his castling right; therefore, Black has the right to castle according to the castling convention.

b) Be2->d1:
The retroanalysis is the same as in a), except that White has just played 0-0, for otherwise there is overbalance for one of the sides: c2xd3? – the black c-pawn could not get to c1; e2xd3? – the black e-pawn could not get to e1; Kh1-g1? – this must have been preceded by Rh4xh3+ – an excessive capture of a white piece, overbalance; Re1-f1? – illegal check to the black king.
The white e-pawn was promoted on e8; the black castling is illegal. This rules out the solution from a). The only solution is:
1.d6 Re1+ 2.Kd7 axb8S# (model mate)

An original rendition of the theme of mutually exclusive castlings. (Authors.)

Nice retro-puzzle with complex content.
