Beware of the Unicorn and the Cyclops Syndrome.

Accidents happen and these two are playing together all the time.
3 examples from RHP. Trust me I could have posted a lot more.

Four positions from Round one of the 2019 Batumi Olympiad.

Two players set up mutual back rank tricks against each other.

A glass trap that even a blind man could see through. I love these.

A failed attempt at a Stalemate and possible plausible unplayed perpetual trap
