No.492 by Pierre Tritten – А nice problem with thematic activity of all three white pieces and of the black Queen! (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 King’s square.

Very nice problem with cyclic zilahi and model mates. Every time the wK and one of the white pieces guard 2 flight squares each of the bK.
Active sacrifices of bQ and white pieces.

This is a problem you could use to show a beginner what T&M is, or what a cyclic Zilahi is!
Very harmonious.
