A check with GeoGebra:

Let ABC be a triangle and P a point.

Let (Q) be the CEVIAN circle of P and (Qab), (Qac) the circles touching AB,AC and (Q) internally and let (Tab), (Tac) be the points of contact. Similarly we define the points Tbc, Tba and Tca, Tcb.

For all P (except for the points P on the bisectors) the lines TabTac, TbcTba, TcaTcb are concurrent.

Let (Q) be the PEDAL circle of P and (Qab), (Qac) the circles touching AB,AC and (Q) internally and let (Tab), (Tac) be the points of contact. Similarly we define the points Tbc, Tba and Tca, Tcb.

For all P (except for the points P on the

bisectors and on the circumcircle) the lines TabTac, TbcTba, TcaTcb are concurrent.

------------------------------------------------

Let (Q) be the circle Intersecting the sidelines of the triangle in D, E and F. (Qab), (Qac) the circles touching AB,AC and (Q) internally and let (Tab), (Tac) be the points of contact. Similarly we define the

points Tbc, Tba and Tca, Tcb.

The lines TabTac, TbcTba, TcaTcb are concurrent.
