Award 21.2.2018
A very entertaining problem for solvers, and surprisingly artistic too.
In both solution black and white apply the same strategy:
the white pawn finds a unique path to the promotion square,
and the black promoted piece moves and completes the net
for the final selfmate situation. (Judge of the section: Ofer Comay (Israel))
