No.531 by Pierre Tritten – Multiple interchange of functions in Take&Make problem! (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.

Une mécanique bien “huilée” par LE specialiste du T&M
Bien joué Pierre !

Well matched solutions with perfect ODT. 3 pairs of sacrifices with line clearance for the bK to arrive on the mating square. Well done Pierre!
