No.535 by Kenneth Solja – Interesting four-men with a “leapfrog of two Locusts”! (JV)


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.

Locust(L): Moves along Queen lines only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.

      That motivation should perhaps be mentioned:
      if we promote to Q on h1, Black can defend by 6.Qd8!
