No.206 – ser-h#4 by Peter Harris – This problem is dedicated to Nikola Predrag, and I’ve got it yesterday with the author’s words “I made this today for Nikola – for him to enjoy solving!“. I believe that not only Nikola will enjoy the solving! (JV)
White Maximummer – Only White must play the geometrically longest moves, Black plays orthodoxal.
Sentinels Pion advers: When a piece (not a Pawn) moves, a Pawn of the colour of the opposite side appears on the vacated square if it is not on the first or the last rank, and if there are less than 8 Pawns of that colour on the board.
Anti-Circe (Cheylan): When a piece captures (including King), it must come back to its rebirth square. If this square is occupied, the capture is forbidden. A Pawn capturing on its promotion rank promotes before it is reborn. The captures on the rebirth square are forbidden.
