Problem 118: Pierre Tritten - Fairy (Take & Make)

tritten(26.01.2013) A new excellent "Take & Make" problem by Pierre Tritten (France)!








1.Be4 Sxd1(Sd7) 2.Kxb7(Kd5) Sxb6(Sa5)#

1.Rdd4 Sxg2(Sc6) 2.Kxd8(Kd5) Sxb4(Sb2)#

-Interchange of function white Bb7/Rd8 (rear battery piece/passive sacrifice)

-Interchange of function of black Bg2/Rd1 (preventive selfblock/passive sacrifice)

-Creation of batteries fired by the same wS



Take & Make: Every capture ("take") must be complemented by a further step ("make": not a capture) by the capturing piece, using the movement of the captured unit, otherwise the capture is illegal. Pawns may not end up on their own first rank. Captures on the promotion rank lead to promotions only if the pawn is still on the promotion rank after the "make" part of the move. Promotions at the end of the "make" element are normal.

Perfect analogy in both solutions and very good use of T&M fairy condition - an excellent problem!
