No.850 by Anatoly Stepochkin – В-star in a light position! (JV)

Definitions:

Diagram Circe: When a piece is captured (King excluded, unless otherwise stated), it must be replaced on the square it occupied in the diagram position if it is empty; otherwise, the captured unit vanishes.

Maximummer: Black must play the geometrically longest move or may choose from among longest moves of equal length, distances being measured from the center of each square. Diagonal and oblique distances are measured from the orthogonal coordinates by using Pythagora’s theorem (take the square root of the sum of the squares of the orthogonal distances). All other orthodox chess rules apply.
