No.233 – h#3 by Dominique Forlot – A nice and surprising final! (JV)

Definitions:

Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the K’s square.

PWC: When a capture is made, the captured unit (except a King) is replaced on the square the capturing unit just leaves. A Pawn is immovable on its 1st rank.

To improve this problem we can present it in the following way:
1) Remove this white king who plays no role here
2) Propose a twin with a thematic solution

N.B. It seems to exist a kind of echo in the operations of mutual ambushes.
a) indian : the Bishop in ambush
b) “pseudo-indian” : the King in suicid-ambush in opposite side

What do you think of these miniature twins
