I’m happy to welcome a new author on the site, well-known French problemist – Alain Biénabe!
No.180 – Pser-h#4 by Alain Biénabe – Nice Pser miniature! Also, for now this is the only one original Pser-problem published here! (JV)
Pser: This is the original definition by its inventor, Dan Meinking: A parry series-mover differs from a standard series-mover prior to the last move as follows:
- the series-side may give check during the series;
- when checked, the idle-side must immediately parry the threat;
- a parry-move may be helpful or defensive, depending on the problem-type;
- after a check-and-parry, the series-side continues the series.
Every Pser problem combines two stipulations:
Part 1 – Pser, which indicates the special series play with participation of both sides according to the author’s definition;
Part 2 – the kind of problem, according to well known stipulations, which can show direct play (n#, n=, s#, s= r#, r=, etc), help play (h#, h=, h==, etc) or mixed play (hs#, hs=, hs= =, etc).
