to this genre (AUW with 2 white and 2 black pawns in hs#) I point to my essays in Problemkiste 153,164,165 February,April,June 2006, where a lot of examples are shown. was the first one in this genre and
shows first time the promotion type BQ/SR
here TS did it with “kings and pawns only-form =Kindergarten” and
was the first in miniature (by Zugzwang)
and now YM gave us the theme “en miniature and Kindergarten”.
At lest the question: is it possible to do it “en miniature and Kindergarten and Zugzwang”?

Now in TS HS#5 (P1072218) maybe thematic twin:
b) wPc7 > d7
1.d8=B b3 2.a8=Q b2 3.Qh1 b1=S 4.Ba5 a1=R 5.Bc3 Sxc3 #.

4 years ago quoted by Bartel Erich seems a close anticipation.

On PDB Server were inputed many problems with insufficient information. To explore more deeply with the subject, alas(!) we need to view all the tasks according to the method stip=’HS#3′,
stip=’HS#4′, etc.
Position of Th. Steudel I composed myself (03.April.2016, with wPa7=wPe7!) but ignored it due to 8 pieces without fifth promotion (See my comentaries to P1188804 and P1072218
on PDB Server).
