    Thanks Luce. It was really a very hard labour put in especially by Vlaicu.

    Both Ks transported to their final squares alternately on the lines g2-a8 and g7-a7.
    A total of 7 pieces thematically captured in each solution to reach the final position with only the Ks and a BB/BR.
    Typical T&M sacrifices and teleportation all over the board.
    Another fine addition to the joint work of the Indo-Romanian duo.

    Very nice Superguard effects in the last two moves. I wonder if a6 can be white to add some more apparent choice to both.

    • Vlaicu Crisan says:

      Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, with a wPa6 the solution in a) would not work any more because White can play 5.Kxb6→b5.

  6. S.K.BalasubramanianS K Balasubramanian says:

    with a6 as wP, wK can escape in (a) with 5.K*b6-b5,b4.
