Some time ago I had a pleasure to show you a joint problem by world-known German authors – Dieter Müller, Franz Pachl & Sven Trommler – No.87.
This time I’m happy to get and to present to you one more problem by Franz Pachl !
No.133 – h#2 – Le Grand theme with 4 white fairy promotions. (JV)
Grasshopper(G): Moves along Q-lines over another unit of either color to the square immediately beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.
Double Grasshopper(DG): Makes a Grasshopper move without capturing, then a 2nd Grasshopper move.
Camel – (1,3) Leaper
Zebre – (2,3) Leaper
RAO (Chinese Rose) – plays as a Leo but on Rose-lines only.
LEO(LE): Moves as Queen, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.
PWC – When a capture is made, the captured unit (except a King) is replaced on the square the capturing unit just leaves. A Pawn is immovable on its 1st rank.
