No.156 – h#2 by Pierre Tritten  Very dynamic Take & Make strategy! (JV)


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.

To my opinion this is not a Zilahi, because the Knights which black captures in solutions are not mating although they are taking part of the mate, but not mating.
But this is just my opinion ..
