No.5 – This helpmate was like a self-training for me. I had 2 points: 1) before I preferred to use Knigts – so, here decided to compose without them; 2) from my solving experience I believed that problem is more complicated for solving is case if there’s a move of balck King (maybe I’m wrong, but it was my feeling). So, for a week I tried to implement the idea of building batteries with B/R where black King has to move to the battery line.
