    About No.271. I’m not very satisfied with this twin, but for now haven’t found any option how to avoid it, but to keep this different order of moves in 2 solutions.
    The main thematic can be also shown in a very simple form, miniature, h#2:
    h#2 ; b) Pc3->c2 ; (1+4+2n)

    a) 1.nNe3-d1 ncQf3*c3=ncS 2.ncSc3-b5=ncB ncBb5-a4=ncR #
    b) 1.nNe3-g4 ncQf3*c6=ncS + 2.ncSc6-e5=ncB ncBe5-a1=ncR #

    But I still prefer the published version, although it is less economical, but I find it more interesting.
