Let's just say counting was the fifth challenge ...

After 26.Qe3 Nxc3! was to be found. It seems this task was swallowed somehow, making it only Quinti's quartet.

All the best

BKnight2003: Really good title and example by Oliver Reeh! Indeed only a fifth decision is missing to complete Quintilliano's quintet...

It is only FOUR decisions! Which is a pity, because I found them all, and wanted a fifth!
