    Most spectacular is the fact that the FTF-transformed bSb4/f6 cannot capture the mating piece because Black would have to remove his own Bc3/Re4, re-activating the transformed white piece with self-check.

    Most subtle – and to me, most interesting – is the promotion on g8, played only so that White has something other than Rb3/Bf5 (which are needed to guard flights) to remove in the mating move.

    Checked also by Jacobi. Try in a): 1.Kd2? Rb1 2.Rxe6 [-c6] Sc4+ 3.c7-c5! and in b): 1.Kc4? Rb5 2.Rd4 Sa3+ 3.a5-a4!
