11355 - Werner Keym
Die Schwalbe, Heft 192, 2001

Starting with the initial game array (white to move), there exist, for any piece and any square it can reach, there exists a proof game in which this piece ends up on that square. Moves by promoted pieces aren't allowed. Which of these games is longest, and for which piece/square is this maximum reached?

[Examples: There's a 7.5 move long proof game in which Ke1 reaches a8, and there is a 7.0 move long proof game in which Ra8 reaches f8]

According to the author, the answer is unique!
