Black Must Check

    “Black must absolutely check” would be a better translation of BlackUltraSchachZwang. “Black must check” already exists with a different meaning, according to the Problemist Glossary.

    Also, the definition of BlackUltraSchachZwang given here is missing the statement “Stalemate and mate remain orthodox” found in the PDB definition. This is important otherwise there are short solutions like 1.Qc7+ Kb4 2.Qe7+ Sxe7#.

    Seems without the fairy condition also the solution will as it is helpmate.
