No.372 – James Quah – 4-fold Djurasevic theme! (JV)
AMU: mate is possible only in the case, when mating piece is attacked by the opposite piece. If the piece is attacked twice, then it loses again the ability to give mate. (or from Juraj Lörinc’s website: Condition AMU means that the piece making the mating move must be before this mating move attacked by exactly one opposite unit.)
Lion(Li): Moves along Q-lines over another unit of either color to any square beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.
Rook-Lion(RL): Moves like Lion, but on Rook-lines only.
Bishop-Lion(BL): Moves like Lion, but on Bishop-lines only.
