Problem 522: Dragan Stojnic & Branislav Djurasevic - Helpmate
dragan.stojnicbranislav.djurasevic(04.02.2015) A H#6 with fourfold creation and play of black batteries with double checks - probably a task! Welcome to Dragan Stojnic and Branislav Djurasevic from Serbia!
1.Sed2 Kg5 2.Sf3+ Kf5 3.Sd4+ Ke5 4.Sc6+ Kxd5 5.Sb4+ Kxc5 6.Ra6 axb4#
One black piece (in this case a knight), during the play, creates four active batteries as a front piece. All checks from the new forming batteries are double checks - four times consecutively! Additionally, rear pieces in all forming batteries are different!
Previous example with four double checks is by Chister Jonsson and Anders Lundstrom, Springaren 1991, h#5, white: Kc8,pg2 (2), Black: Kh4, Qa7, Rb6, Rc5, Bc3, Bc6, pb5, e6, f5, h5. (10); solution: 1.Bc6-b7+ Kc8-d7 2.Bb7-c6+ Kd7xe6 3.Bc6-d5+ Ke6xf5 4.Bd5-e6+ Kf5-f4 5.Be6-h3 g2-g3#. Here, only three different rear pieces exist in these battery systems (Rc6 plays two times as rear piece).

Fourfold creation and play of black batteries with four different rear pieces and double checks is definitly a task!

Compare to the following h#6:

Long time ago I was trying to implement the similar idea but my work (see below) had gotten no distinction since been anticipated by Abdurahmanovic&Rehm masterpiece

Well... Abruahmanovic&Rehm problem is indeed a masterpiece with the added bristol effect. But I dont think it anticipates your nice problem. They are surely different schemes.

GM Fadil Abdurahmanovic confirms in his personal communication with one of author that this complex (fourfold creation of black batteries together with fourfold double checks)is new. Thank you Fadil for support.
