Problem 239: Pierre Tritten - Fairy (Take & Make)

tritten(28.08.2013) Very nice "Take & Make" problem by Pierre Tritten from France!


1.Sc4 Bxh2-h4 2.Kxb6-d4 Bxd8-b6#

1.Sc5 Rxg4-g8 2.Kxa4-d4 Rxe8-a4#

Anticipatory self-pin

Double pin mates

Mate by unit replacing captured unit of same nature

Diagonal-orthogonal echo, model mates



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.

Two weeks without published fairy problem on the website, but this one deserved our patience ;)
