Problem 277: Pierre Tritten - Fairy (Anti Circe Clone)

tritten(13.11.2013) New Anti Circe Clone problem by Pierre Tritten! This time with cyclic Zilahi and cyclic change of functions between white pieces in nice twins form.


a) 1.Bg7 Be3+ 2.Kxe3(rBf8) Sg6#

b) 1.e5 Sd5 2.Kxd5(rSg8) Rg6#

c) 1.gxh3(Ph7) Rc5 2.Kxc5(rRh8) Bf6#

Cyclic Zilahi

Cyclic interchange of function between white pieces (sacrifice for bK / passive anticipatory guard / mate)

Diagonal-orthogonal echo


Anti Circe Clone:A capturing piece (including King) takes the nature of the captured piece and then goes to its Circe rebirth square. The checking/mating piece do not take the nature of the King and its returning square is according its own nature.
