No.806 by Krassimir Gandev – Three promoted pieces pinned by Rose in serial S#! (JV)


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

Dummy King (Royal Dummy Piece): A King which cannot move.

Dummy piece (DU): A piece which cannot move.

Berolina Super Pawn (BS): It is Berolina-Pawn but its moves and captures are respectively extended to the entire diagonal and the entire column.

Berolina-Pawn(BP): Walk and capture are swapped relative to the orthodox Pawn. The Berolina-Pawn moves without capturing diagonally (possibly two squares if it is on the second row of its side) and captures vertically.

Super Pawn (SP): Moves straight forwards and captures diagonally forwards through as many empty squares as desired. Promotion is normal.

Reverse Pawn (PP): Moves opposite to normal Pawn and promotes at the opposite end of board.

Rose(RO): (1,2) Octagonal Rider (extents the move of the Knight on a circular path e.g. a4-b6-d7-f6-g4-f2-d1-b2 or a4-c5-e4-f2).

    Nice idea of triple pinning but…
    Not only wRd2 is hardly justified, or the black Dummy for just to be captured, or the concept of a black “royal Dummy” which would better be a black “royal square”…

    The concept of “royal Dummy”, as imagined by the author and treated by Popeye, seems as contradictory to itself, due to the very principles of fairy chess.

    WHY the white royal Reverse Pawn wouldn’t promote into a white “royal Dummy”?
    Popeye finds #1 in the end with white royal Dummy on e1, but doesn’t allow its promotion.
