Black Passes if Stuck
Solution: (click to show/hide)
(C+ by WinChloe)
Manager is a new fairy condition invented by David Antonini, which is
in some sense opposite to Functionary (a Manager piece may move
only when observing enemy, instead of being observed by enemy for
a Functionary piece).
Applied to a proof game, only black Manager is used, together with the additional condition that black passes when stuck – black would be stalemated at its first move otherwise.
This problem is the first published illustration of this new couple of possibilities. It shows a double capture-free rectangle circuit, one from the original Bf1, and one from a promoted rook, which is moreover finally captured by an officer (Prentos theme). It is C+ WinChloe.
