No.305 by Igor Kochulov – A nice four-men!  (JV)


Definition:

Maximummer – Black must play the geometrically longest move or may choose from among longest moves of equal length, distances being measured from the center of each square. Diagonal and oblique distances are measured from the orthogonal coordinates by using Pythagora’s theorem (take the square root of the sum of the squares of the orthogonal distances). All other orthodox chess rules apply.

In a helpselfplay problem, the maximummer condition can be useful only on the last black mating move. The author here uses this condition as a hindrance to black and thereby forcing white checks ! Interesting !
