Warm welcome to the well-known English author, Chris Feather, in this section! I couldn’t say that this is a new name on the site, as I have already had the pleasure of presenting to you Fairings-issues by Chris and his famous book “Black to play“. I believe that everyone will agree that Chris is an exceptionally interesting and knowledgeable person, with a deep understanding of things from so different fields, with a clear style of writing, humanity, and with his compositions, of course! So, I’m very happy to show you an original problem by Chris here!
No.157 – h#3 by Chris Feather – Interesting four-men duplex with neutral AUW! (JV)
Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the K’s square.
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.
