  1. Jacques Rotenberg says:

    nicely motivated under-promotions
    seems to have been done for the last wcct

      Thanks Jacques. Yes it was started for the last wcct. But we could not make the Q promotion solution fully thematic.

  2. Seetharamanseetharaman says:

    A version suggested by Jacques saves a pawn and has a neat tempo move for black. But I prefer the black rook moves of my version.

    H#2 Two Sols. Take&Make
    1.Sf7-d6 e7*f8-h8=Q 2.Bc6-d5 Qh8*d8-e8 #
    1.Rd8-e8 d7*e8-d8=R 2.Bc8-b7 e7*f8-e8=R #

    Thanks Julia for accepting our new version. Two sets of underpromotions make the problem complete!

  4. Jacques Rotenberg says:

    There is also a kind of exchange of places:

    The rook goes to d4 and then to f4
    The bishop passes through f4 to reach d4
