I thought on 1.- Bf4 but was not able to see the bishop route f4-e3-c1-a3-d6. Copying the solution from superproblem.ru:

Be5# 1-0[/pgn]

An alternative solution is 72.- ..., Qb7+; 73.- Kxb7.

I tried SF 6 and it saw mate in 10 after 64.- ..., h2 was played.

Then I tried Houdini 3 w32 (mate search = 74) and I randomly analyzed on some positions. After 52.- Bc1 was played, here is what Houdini got:

Bingo! Checkmate in 74 - 52 = 22 found! ..., Bb6+ is played before than in the solution but the result is the same.

I stopped the analysis after 21 minutes and 13 seconds; there were 1978 TB hits to the full set of 5-man Nalimov EGTB at that moment. I used the two cores of an Intel Pentium D930 (3 GHz) of year 2006; hash size was 1 GB and EGTB hash was 64 MB.

Is there any place to get the problems from superproblem.ru in EPD format?
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

After 39 moves, study mode off (default):

Seeing from there it worked rather fast, some more moves would have been possible too but I'd be rather sure not the full length from the real starting position

Gustav 3.3b (f1, z14) needs 1 min 42 sec. for mate in 74.
