No.519 by János Mikitovics – A nice hs# Miniature, Aristocrat with a difficult play!  (JV)

Definitions:

Locust(L): Moves along Queen lines only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.

Rook-Locust(LR): Moves like Locust, but on Rook-lines only.

Bishophopper(BH): Moves along Bishop-lines over another unit of either color to the square immediately beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

PAO(PA): Chinese piece operating along Rook lines: moves as Rook, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.

Swapping Kings: If a move exposes the opponent’s King to a check under normal rules, then the two Kings are switched, and check or checkmate is newly evaluated, and of course a move is illegal if after such a switch one’s own King is in check.

1. János Mikitovics says:

Dear Friends,
Here is a plan with the diagonal batteries.
The version is C+ from the second move only. I would be very glad if somebody, who likes the idea, as a co-author, would find the correct setting.
