Well, I have discovered one more Mats Winther Capa chess variants last night. These are Capa opening setups where white can threaten mate on the first move. As per the official rules of ChessVariants.org, only Mats Winther is allowed to Christen (give names to) any Capa setup with a first-move mating threat.

Here it is:

QRBNKANBRM 1. Ag3 mating threat
So, this is good news for Mats and bad news for the rest of us. The good news is that Mats now has 11, count them, 11 opening setups he can make Capa variants out of:
RQNBMKBNAR Md3
QRNBMKBNRA Md3
RBNQKMANBR Mg3
BRNQKMANRB Mg3
QRNBKMBNRA Mg3
BRNAQKMNRB Mh3 (Capa 1)
RNBQAKMBNR Mh3 (Teutonic)
BRNQAKMNRB Mh3
RABNQKNBMR Mh3
RQBNAKNBMR Mh3
QRBNKANBRM Ag3
The bad news is that only 40 Capa setups are left for the rest of us.

Sibahi: I did not get your reply. Did you get Jeremy's message?
