Problem 626: Dmitri Turevski - Helpmate
dmitri.turevski(13.11.2015) Happy to publish this nice helpmate in Tanagra from the Russian expert Dmitri Turevski. The two solutions are a great example of unity in diversity! I take the opportunity to thank him for all the wonderful work he is doing apart from composing -- the Popeye interface 'Olive' the free database 'Yacpdb' and the latest addition "Py2web" (the animation software)!

h#5 by Paliulionis is also neat. I like dinamic BK which finds his death at different edges of chessboard. Well-done!
