Captures of white officers have been fashionable for a long time (the legendary helpmate patron John Niemann once spontaneously called it „bystander theme“.) Here an extended Zilahi is presented with two white rooks and two white bishops as thematic pieces. A massive wall of pawns is needed to control those pieces. It is a bit deplorable that there is an extra capture (2.– B×c4) in the first solution and an extra line-opening (a3-a6) in the second one.
