MatPlus.Net Forum Fairies New fairy condition: Countercheck Madrasi

### New fairy condition: Countercheck Madrasi

I was wondering if the following condition was used before:

Countercheck Madrasi - a checking move is illegal if there is a countercheck with a piece of the same kind (leaving both kings in check).

(= 7+9 )

Solution:
1.Ra5! Zugzwang
1.-Bb2 2.Rd5#
1.-Rb2 2.Be5#
1.-Nd7 2.Ne6#
1.-b5 2.c3#

Not that I know of.

This needs some elaboration, I think. When you write "check" and "countercheck", do you mean "move delivering (counter)check"?

In this position:
(= 3+2 )

Is the c2 pinned, or can he expose his own king to the a4 because the c8 has a "check"?

And in this position:
(= 3+2 )

Is g7 a legal check (i.e. does the "countercheck" ~ (with check by the ) count)?

In your first position Rc2 is pinned, in the second position Bg7+ is illegal.
You can not expose your own king to check (as in the first position) even in the following conditions:
(= 2+3 )

1.-Rh1+ is a legal move!

This condition is a nice idea!
I think that it can offer some interesting possibilities.

(= 4+10 )

h=7

Perhaps too long to be correct...

In the following position 1.Be5?? is an illegal move as black would annihilate both checking units by 1.-Bd4. But 1.Ba5 is a legal move!

(= 3+3 )

(= 2+4 )

In the second position the only legal move for white which gives check is 1.Qd4+! as 1.Qa1+?? would be followed by 1.-Qe3+!
1.-Qg7+ - which also gives countercheck - doesn't proves illegality as only one king remains in check!

The h=7 would rather answer to another condition:

COUNTERCHECK ISARDAM:

A checking move is illegal if it leaves the possibility to the opposite side to countercheck with a piece of the same kind than one (at least) of the checking pieces (leaving both Kings in check, or not).
