Pendulum maneuver based on successive change between single and double attacks of the square e5 by White, answered by successive change between single guard and none by Black. A white Queen walks to square a1 to start an excelsior of white Pawn c2, and she returns to square b8 to finish it. Finally, White sacrifices the promoted Knight, then a Rook and a Queen to force a selfmate. (Author)

Judge Miodrag Mladenović 07/2022:
"Great zig-zag maneuvers of the white Queen and Rook with logical motives. To achieve the goal White has to promote 'c' Pawn to Knight. Although zig-zag play is not new in longer selfmates this is one of the best."
