Greek Progressive Chess

In an email, autumn 1999, Kostas Prentos from Greece suggested a variant of Progressive Chess, for which he mentioned the possible name of suspended progressive chess. To keep in style, with other progressive chess variants, I named this one Greek Progressive Chess.


The rules of Scottish progressive chess are followed, but with the following different rule: Every player has the right to play up to one move more than his opponent in his last turn. I.e., white starts with making one move, then black can play one or two moves. If black has played two moves, then white can make one, two, or three moves; if black made one move, then white can make one or two moves.
