    AUW + Albino is itself a nice task. Matching the promotions and capturing piece is a great thematic addition! Well done!

      Thanks Dmitri. A great problem with an amazing twinning. 8 solutions! Nothing less to be expected when two great masters collaborate !!

  3. Antonio Garofalo says:

    There is also correspondence between black piece capturing and white piece promoted. Wonderful!

      Thanks Mr. Antonio Garofalo.
      Abdurahmanović is a great composer and the example given by Dmitri Turevski is a superb one.

      However, in our problem both albino & AUW are integrated and occur cobinedly in 4 solutions.
