No.613 by Peter Harris – A problem with Equistopper by its inventor starts from two pieces and ends as a Meredith final! (JV)

Definitions:

Equistopper(QE): Сan move to and make a capture on any square midway between it and any other piece PROVIDED THAT there is no other piece in between The proviso does not apply to a movement that is not along a rank, file or diagonal.

Royal piece: Piece that executes a function of the King on the board.

Sentinels: When a piece (Ks included but not pawns) moves, a pawn of the same colour appears on the vacated square unless that square is on the first or eighth ranks or there are 8 pawns of that colour on the board already.
