I like this problem. Good AUW even without the White series attachment to front, though this does make it more fun to solve, which I did. Clever cooking on the first version. I think this correction is sound. These attachments have potential. Great potential, to put some zest into series. I have not seen many. Thanks for making one. Reverse pawns are cool!
