Here is a problem from my blog once more. This is the position after White's 14th move. Seven Black pieces were captured during the game for a total of 27 points using the normal piece values. Where are Black's nine surviving pieces?

  • I think that we should first calculate how the white pieces rearranged themselves. The pawns made four moves, one knight made 4, the other none, and the rooks must have gotten out after king and bishop moves. – user24344 Sep 13 '20 at 23:46
  • @ReinstateMonica, yes, we should first calculate the rearrangement. Unfortunately the one you have submitted doesn't fit in the 14 White's moves! – Eric ANGELINI Sep 14 '20 at 14:48
  • I mean the rooks must have taken the remaining 6 moves to get across. – user24344 Sep 14 '20 at 22:17
