Problem 834: Murali Karthikeyan, S. Manikumar - Helpmate
murali.karthikeyanmanikumar.s(21.05.2017) Welcome to Murali Karthikeyan, 18 year old Grandmaster from India. I am happy to publish his first composed problem, a nice Tanagra showing three underpromotions, an echo-mate and neat exchange of function! He is already a keen solver finishing third in the Junior section of the ISC two years ago and has a healthy solving rating of 2313. We welcome and expect more from him.

Our indefatigable expert Vitaly pointed out several anticipations for part (a), but we both thought that adding part (b) makes it entirely original. Thanks for this brilliant original Murali and Manikumar!
