No.503 by Pierre Tritten – Very interesting interchange of functions shown by the both sides in Take&Make problem! (JV)


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.

    So much happening on C5 ! I like the repeated captures on c5. The clearance move 1….Bc6 in the first solution is also interesting. Pity that 1…Rc3 in the second solution has a different motive !
