2008-09-12 00:23:23floreatdunum1707is this an otb novotny??? 
2009-06-25 15:43:13floreatdunum1707a novotny interference - a classic problem theme - but in a game setting - any database types like to give a reference to the players? 
2010-04-17 16:28:44tomohawk1818Agreed with floreatdunum. If this happened in an actual game, it is very rare indeed.

2011-01-07 06:06:44Raysalis1675I am guessing a Novotny interference is to use the opponent piece to block the action of his own pieces?

2011-09-13 19:21:35tomohawk1818Yes Raysalis, and in particular to play a move that creates two blocks simultaneously. 
2011-11-01 01:02:53NoConception1912Nice.. didn't think I'd see a Novotny as these problems are hard to construct.
