It is very difficult to found correct setting with 14.
Attempt without Bg4?

A new record. Unbelievable  two moves more than the old one. And such a beautiful problem!
Congratulations to Michael!

@(343) Popeye gives me a cook in 7 moves when I set the condition ser!#16. So MMM is changing something. Can you give us explanation what does MMM means? How to enter this condition in Popeye (if Popeye supports this type of problems)? 

(345) Posted by Olaf Jenkner [Thursday, Apr 21, 2022 08:29] 
See (76), (77), (80) and (108).
The cook
1. Ke4 2. Kd5 3. Bxc7 4. Bd6 5. Bxe7 6. Kd6 7. Kxd7#
does not work because 7. Kxd7 is illegal (white majesty meets black majesty). 

(346) Posted by Miodrag Mladenović [Thursday, Apr 21, 2022 10:12] 
@(345) Thanks for explanation. There were so many posts and I missed this one at the time. 

(347) Posted by Joost de Heer [Thursday, Apr 21, 2022 10:43] 
@344 as far as I know neither Popeye nor Jacobi have a 'no king's contact' option, but Winchloe has one.

It's a modification of the previous record (159).

It's time for a twelfth interim balance.
It's hard to find the current record in section Sers= . It might be (113).
Several attempts surpass his problem but the might be cooked as well.
New record ser=19 .
Current records are:
Ser# ...11 ........... (39) Arno Tüngler (starter)
Ser= ...19 .......... (349) Arno Tüngler / Michael Schreckenbach
sers# ..17 .......... (124) Frank Richter
sers# ..17 .......... (128) Michael Schreckenbach
sers= ..22 .......... (113) Michel Caillaud (C?)
Serr# ..11 .......... (348) Michael Schreckenbach
Serr= ..17 .......... (273) Joost de Heer (C?)
Ser!# ..14 .......... (325) Michael Schreckenbach / Frank Richter
Ser!# MMM 16 .. (343) Michael Schreckenbach
Ser!= ..26 .......... (118) Dragan Stojnić (C?)
Serh# .KNC 11 .. (42) Michel Caillaud / Arno Tüngler

Serhs= .18 ........ (202) Miodrag Mladenović / Arno Tüngler (C?)
Everybody is invited to surpass one of the entries or to cook one marked C?.

(= 9+16 )
serr=23 (C?)
Solution:
1.h2h4 2.h4h5 3.h5h6 4.h6*g7 5.g7*f8=B 6.Bf8*e7 7.Be7a3 8.b2b4 9.Rb1b2 10.Ba2b1

21.Rd7d3 22.Rd3b3 23.Kc4c3 b7b5=
This one is correct sera=>b23 (Popeye 4.87). 

(352) Posted by Miodrag Mladenović [Friday, Apr 22, 2022 22:25] 
Or even 4 more moves:
(= 9+16 )
serr=27 (C?)
The final position after the solution is:
(= 9+9 )
After 40 minutes of testing Popeye confirmed that last 26 moves are correct sera=>b26. It looks like sera=>b27 will run forever. I'll leave Popeye to run over the night.
Here is the solution:
1.Ra1b1 2.Sb3a1 3.Bc4a2 4.Qh4c4 5.h2h4 6.h4h5 7.h5h6 8.h6*g7 9.g7*f8=B 10.Bf8*e7 11.Be7a3 12.b2b4 13.Rb1b2 14.Ba2b1 15.Qc4a2 16.Kd3c4 17.d2d4 18.d4d5 19.d5d6 20.d6*c7 21.c7*b8=R 22.Rb8*c8 23.Rc8c7 24.Rc7*d7 25.Rd7d3 26.Rd3b3 27.Kc4c3 b7b5=

Thank you very much for the great idea to add the 19th move in the Ser=, Michael! And for the testing, Olaf! Now remains the logical question: could the wK also be on h5 and we have 20 moves?? Probably not but…
EDIT: Of course not, even your cook at (178) works… 

(354) Posted by Olaf Jenkner [Friday, Apr 22, 2022 22:34] 
Of course not, it ist cooked in 19. You can check it by yourself.

Maybe Rc1 instead Sa1, is it ser r=24?
# I wrote post and missed post 352 in meantime...

Maybe with Ra2 can ser r=28 (1.Ra1...), or more risk with Rb4 ser r=29?

It looks like two promotions will not work. Perhaps this one is correct:
(= 9+16 )
serr=19 (C?) 

(360) Posted by Miodrag Mladenović [Saturday, Apr 23, 2022 05:35] 
(A)
(= 10+16 )
serr=25 (C?)
or
(B) if wPa6 helps to prevent cook
(= 11+16 )
serr=25 (C?)
If this one is incorrect perhaps moving wRa1 => b1 gives a correct serr#24. The white rook on a1 perhaps can come to b2 from a2 square. I am running a Popeye trying to prove that sera=>b25 is correct but it takes forever and I am not sure if I'll be able to complete this test because I do not have desktop for testing and for laptop it's not recommended to run it 24+ hours without turning off.
