Nice to meet you on Wednesday, and the jaguar who leapt briefly, Abdelaziz-like, into the cafe then out again. It’s not common to read of unscheduled chess-boxing, but today I read the obit for GM Arthur Bisguier (the Jaguar of Manhattan?) who apparently once broke up a fist-fight between Benko & Fischer. By the way, jaguar is not in glossary currently

For the composers who like the Jaguar, here his probably my best problem with this very rare piece. It is not possible to test it completely, but with the restriction “no promotions in QRBN” it is C+ quickly:
White : Kf3 Pf2 Za8
Black : Kd3 Pa7b7a6a5b3b2ç2d2

“Jaguar (J): Queen which can move only in the direction of a piece”

You might try to couple it with an Imitator, so that we can see if it is a piece or not!

Btw, thanks for your kind email Sebastien.
