Somewhat like Fourriere's Jack at Jacks and Witches that moves out of its Eye, the symmetric square horizontally. R e3-h3 is checkmate, because that Rook reflects to where the Knight is, and Knight goes to h3. Then the King is trapped by the Rook-covered unchanging a-file and the King, because the Black King will be reflected to one of h7, g7 or g8, checkmate. All right, rest in peace Alicia and peculiar to say the least Charles Dodgson.

Quick Markdown Guide

Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra.
