That was a pretty problem! Makes sense once you see it. More bar bets coming.

Nice Bio on Meyer, but it shot to hell my theory that George Algebre came up with the algebraic system (I wont even mention Jean De Script).

The next one looks like a lot of fun, at least there are more pieces to attack with.

Here is an instance of the Bristol Theme occurring in a real game: (do not play through unless you've tried to solve the problem first, though)

Hmm, while researching other problems, I've discovered that it appears that I may be the victim of unreliable internet information. It seems that Meyer's problem is not the first instance of the Bristol theme. Most authorities agree that Frank Healy holds the honor, also from 1861. Apparently the issue is that Meyer's problem may not be from 1861 as my sources indicated- I cannot determine the actual date- and it may be that Meyer was first but for now, given that more authorities claim the honor for Healey, we'll give him the nod.

Here is Healy's version:
