Hypnose (Superpins): A pinned unit loses its power to give check or pin. 

Equihopper (Standard English type): Hops on any straight line (joining square midpoints) to an equal distance beyond a hurdle. Interference and pinning effects are possible on the line.

Equihoppers: e2, f7
Solution: (click to show/hide)
Author’s note to the Equihopper used: The equihoppers are English equihoppers. This means that the hopper effect is blocked by any piece other than the hurdle between the E and the destination square. In contrast to the standard equihopper that is sometimes known as the “non-stop” equihopper. The WinChloe notation is EA (equihopper anglais).
