Thank You very much, dear friends, for your kind dedication!

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.
