A.Buchanan: I really like this one :-) (2020-10-01)
A.Buchanan: If you can start the bishops on f1 & g1, then could have #h4 with the end position being double platzwechsel. Easy to get the h#3.5 - shift Lf2 to g1 & change Be3 to White. I can't help the nagging feeling that I might have seen this double swap somewhere before, but I think it was Black doing the castling (2020-10-01)
