I have describe all five of my relocation variants in the below link, with diagrams. In fact, regrouping is very natural in warfare, and that's why it belongs in chess, too. Julius Caesar regrouped behind his lines before the battle against Pompeius. This was essential as he could counter the cavalry attack on the right flank. So this was how he won the battle. The relocation method would, in a sense, resolve the eternal debate of which is the best of the Capablanca variants, if somebody cares to implement it.
