No.345 by Julia Vysotska – Anti-batteries, reciprocal play of neutral PAO/NAO, Take&Make with activity of the white King and black Q! (JV)


Definition:

PAO(PA): Moves as Rook, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.

NAO(NA): Moves as Leo, but on Nightrider-lines instead of Queen-lines.

Nightrider(N): A Rider along a straight line on squares lying a Knight`s move away from each other.

Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the K’s square.

Beautiful modification of the earlier 342. Pity so many black pawns are needed to control the neutral Nao.

Really a very good improvement of the idea of earlier problem.(342). Now all the pieces are well utilized in both the solutions. It is good to see that one neutral piece is capturing the other one and WK after capturing BQ and completing the T&M moves controls g7 & g8 differently.

Well done! Congrats!
