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?

Because, under the rules of All-in-Chess, you cannot repeat the same position which was reached before the last move

i.e, no “switchbacks” allowed… except when the last move was a capture

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…

You’re right. 1.Rd8 IS a check!
The “+” seems to have been missed.

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

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