Pendulum movement of bishop
Just coming from the Die Schwalbe main page - http://www.dieschwalbe.de/
1st Prize Die Schwalbe 2010
(= 2+12 )
1.Be6 Kd1 2.Qe5 Ke2 3.Kf5+ Kf3 4.Bb3 Bc4 5.f6 Bg8 6.Be6 Bh7#
The judge Hans Gruber praises the cooperation of bishops, especially the fact, that manoeuvre Be6-b3/Bf1-c4-g8/Bb3-e6 is preceded by another Bb3-e6.
The problem has instantly reminded me about another helpmate that I have actively solved 20 years ago as beginner:
Markus Manhart & Franz Pachl
3rd Prize Pat a Mat 1991-92
(= 6+6 )
1.Bxe4 g3 2.Ba8 Bb7 3.Kf5 Bg2 4.Be4 Bh3#
Of course, motivation of capture needed to clear line for wB is much, much easier than precise determination of arrival square of move Bb3-e6 by movement of wK.

I'm reminded of this one:
The Problemist March 1994
(= 4+16 )
Helpmate in 4½
Simple, but memorable!

Of course This Rehm classic is one of the 50 top helpmates selected by Ebert and Gruber for their wonderful book. That book is of course a must for any helpmate lover. Kindly made available by Ebert for free download at http://www.hilmar-ebert.de/
