    An interesting vertical and horizontal zig-zag strategy by the the WR. Typical A-i-C effects as well as “growing men” effects utilised well.

    Is it really mate? Why black cannot play 9…Rb8?

  3. 1.Rd8 is a check, isn’t it?
    Just wondering as the current notation may look like there is quiet key. But I might be wrong…

  4. S N Ravi Shankar says:

    Yes. 1.Rd8 IS a check. An error, which i did not notice while sending the problem. Thanks, Shankar ram for clarifying.

  5. S N Ravi Shankar says:

    There is another error. The fairy condition is ‘Growing Men’ and not ‘Growing Man’. Julia, can you correct it please?
