Problem 252: Vladimir Kozhakin - Fairy (Take & Make)

kozhakin(02.10.2013) Fairy original with letter "B" on the diagram dedicated to the congress in Batumi. Welcome to Vladimir Kozhakin from Russia!


1.Sxd1-e3 Re5 2.Sc4 Sxd2-b4#

1.Sxe4-f6 Bxd2-g5 2.Ke4 Sf2#

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.
