    Black must double check neatly eliminates unwanted single checks !!

  2. Geoff Foster says:

    Does White’s final move have to be a check? Even with the bK on a different square (e.g. bK on d7), Black’s only move would be 7…f1=nS#, because this is the only double-check.

  3. Seetharamanseetharaman says:

    Right Geoff. It need not be a check. Wonder if it is sound with bKa3.

  4. Geoff Foster says:

    Clearly the bK has to be on h1, to force the order of the moves 1.g8=nR 2.nRg2 3.a8=nQ. However after that I think the bK could be on lots of other squares, with White’s final move not being a check.
