    Good boy Joost !

    A slightly lighter (is it?) position seems to work too:
    Kg7, pp. a7, b7 , c7 / Kb3, Qd6, Sa8, BTb8 (4+4)
    Same solution (of course).

    • Joost de Heer says:

      Qd6 can be a rook too. I thought I had tried something like that, but apparently not. Thanks for the major improvement!

      • adrian storisteanu says:

        Sure, it’s always fun toying with a position like this… (Ha ha, I also just noticed that a bRd6 works just as well.)

  3. adrian storisteanu says:

    (…or similarly e.g., Ke7, pp. a7, b7 , c7 / Kb3, Qg6, Sa8, BTb8)
