Dear retro-friends,

Let me call your attention to a kind of fairy retro (implicit)
in the following problem that has just won the 3d place (preliminary)
in the Liga Problemista 1/2008 tourney of Mat Plus (Mat Plus No.29
http://www.matplus.net/pub/zip/MP29.pdf ):

P.Pitton, 8/8/1p6/B7/kPp5/s1p5/2sp4/1S1K4 (4+7) h#2; b)-wKd1
1.Sa1 Ke2 2.Sb3 Sxc3#.
1.cxb3 ep Bxb6 2.Sb4 Sxc3#. (!?)

Theme: h#2 twinned by removal of wK.
