Wazir(WE): (0,1)Leaper (Vizir in WinChloe)

Nice. However, static Leo acts as a Lion, almost as a Grasshopper.

• Position Predrag with Grasshopper is better. 🙂

• Geoff Foster says:

I think “Vizir” should be “Wazir” (WE in Popeye).

• Julia says:

Yes, thank you, Geoff! In Popeye it is Wazir. Author’s diagram and solutions used WinChloe’s terms. Probably, I should change it to Popeye’s version, as for the most of published problems.
