Dameo rules: wiki - mindsports - ig game center

Signs used are '?' for a bad move, '!' for a good one, '??' for a catastrophe, '!!' for a great find, '+' for a win and '=' for a draw or an even position.
_______________________________________________________________________

Procedure
I will upload a new Dameo problem every week with the solution of the previous one. That way there will be two problems to consider at any given time.
For all problems it's "White to move and win".
Solutions are given in successive diagrams and for each diagram it's "Black to move" (unless otherwise indicated).

Problem #4.


White b2 b3 c2 c3 d3 d4 f3 g1 g2 - Black a2 a3 b6 c6 c8 d6 e6 f6 g5

Here's problem #3, a 'coup royal', and its solution.


White b3 c1 e1 e2 e3 f2 h4 - Black b4 b5 e4 e5 f5 g6 h7

Solution problem 3:
Spoiler (click to reveal)

Several participants voted for 1.f23 and for good reasons: 2.e3f4 allows a capture of four men and promotion.
I discovered this too late (my apologies, I'm still fairly new at this) and looked in vain for a draw, but no, it's a plain win and therewith an alternative solution.
This definitely disqualifies it as a problem, but I hope voters enjoyed finding either solution anyway.
This is the intended solution:


1.e1g3 The key-move


1...b4x2
2.c12


2...bxd2
3.exc2 Black now must capture in the characteristic 'royal' way to get from e4 to g4.


3...e4xe2xg2xg4
4.h4xf4xf6xh6xh8K + (for instance 4…b5a4 5.h85 e5f4 6.h53!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the alternative solution:

1.f23 b4x2
2.e3f4 exg4
3.h4x8K b2a1K

Here we'll rule out:
5.f3e4 axh1
6.e4x6 h1e4!!

4.hf8 a1xf4 The only sensible alternative.
5.f8x3 b5a4
6.f3a8 a4b3
7.a82 e5f4
8.a2b1 +
