-c2, b1/b2 to c1/c2 saves a wP!

Ingenious and highly specific! Earlier compositions with this condition often used fairy pieces as well, but here the AB-BA letter contents do without. AMU – obviously a fertile and wrongly neglected condition!

Very interesting condition! Who had introduced this and when? Can I see some earlier examples?

Several examples AMU can be found on the Juraj Lőrinc`s website: http://www.jurajlorinc.com/chess/fi_a.htm#amu

Miroslav Brada invented this in the early 90s along with MAFF, OWU and maybe others.(Sounds like Franklin Roosevelt’s alphabet soup!). As for Juraj’s website, it is absolutely encylopedic! It is the site that I first found Brada’s conditions. Juraj provides an amazing service to the problem world. His >200 compositions are worth a look as well!
