  1. … and the 2nd solution has the cook flavour, unfortunately.

  2. Seetharamanseetharaman says:

    Actually the first two solutions were composed first, showing change of function of White rook and bishop !

    Dear Juraj,
    To clarify,while the 1,3 solutions show echomates, 1 and 2 show change of function (WR,WF).

    • I understand what you say. But as the strategy is not particularly deep, it is rather the visual impression offered by echo that gets the preference and subsequently the second solution looks like not fitting into picture.

    This idea can also be easily processed in an orthodox way, for example:
    White Rh7 Rg4 Bc2 (+wK wherever)
    Black Kd5 Re3
    H#2, 2 solutions, C+
    1.Re3-c3 Rg4-g5+ 2.Kd5-c4 Rh7-h4#
    1.Re3-e5 Bc2-e4+ 2.Kd5-e6 Rg4-g6#

  5. Ganapathiganapathi says:

    But change of function feature, is it not lost?

    • Ladislav Packa says:

      I am sorry, but the third solution seems to me only as a random product of the solving program. But you’ll also find rooks function change in the offered scheme.

    Thank you, I see the point!
