In diagram no. 70 the motivation of 1.Sf5 is to be the hurdle for Lion. Therefore no Sb5? Instead, the motivation of 1.Bf7 is because 1.Bc6? is illegal move. In my version all first moves are illegal. (Author)

No.80 Antonio Garofalo
original – 10.08.2012
ser-h#7          b) Ke2->a6            (4+8)

No.80. Unusual motivation of black King protecting white king from check ! More common is black pieces shutting off white pieces to let the black king cross over. I like it very much.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
