  1. Nice series problem Vlaicu! The diagram seems incorrect, though. It is C+ Popeye v4.61 with bPg7->f7.

    With bPf7 the “cook” given by Popeye v4.63 etc is also quite entertaining!

      I suppose the problem with the diagrammed position is the dual 3.Kf7/Kd7 in the first solution? A real problem, yes, so the diagram does seem wrong.

  2. Geoff Foster says:

    There is at least one cook that can’t be fixed: in the second solution 6.Bxd7(+nPe8=nQ) works just as well.

  3. Luce Sebastien says:

    Yes it is C+ only Winchloe with black pawn on f7 instead of g7
