Two very good Take&Make problems by Pierre Tritten:

No.279 – А super dynamical Zilahi in Meredith-form! (JV)

No.280 – Surprising mates on the same square! (JV)

Definitions:

Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the K’s square.
