No.419 by Peter Harris – Interesting maneuvers of all 3 white pieces! (JV)
Ultra-Patrol Chess – A piece can move, capture or give check only if it is observed by a piece of its own side.
No-Сapture Chess – Captures are illegal, but all other rules, including check (or mate), are orthodox.

Very interesting problem demonstrating the ‘not often used’ condition Ultra Patrol. Apart from the typical Ultra-patrol maneuvers I wish the problem showed an additional theme.
Is “No capture” condition only needed to avoid 11…K:c1 in the final position?
