Klasinc theme

Piece A leaves square a to allow a second piece B to pass over square a to its destination. After the move of piece B, the thematic piece A returns to square a.

In the basic form of the theme, piece B moves across square a. In the second form of the Klasinc theme (type 2), piece B reaches its final destination in two moves, first playing to square a.
