Henrik Juel: What is the definition of Free capture chess?
Apparently you may capture your own men, but there must be more to it, otherwise 3.Kxd5 would prevent the mates
Maybe it is just: You may only capture your own men (and the enemy king) (2016-02-24)
Adrian Storisteanu: Same issue of "The Problemist" says:
Free-capture (Reform, Kiev chess): either side may capture a unit (not K) of its own colour; e.g. in F1032 1.Rxc5+ or 1.Kxc5. (2016-02-24)
Adrian Storisteanu: Henrik, regarding your refutation -- there is a misprint in the diagram: a wBg2 is missing (6+10). (2016-02-24)
Henrik Juel: Thanks for useful info, Adrian (2016-02-24)
