No.555 by Gani Ganapathi – A nice Berolina-Excelsiors! (JV)

Definitions:

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.

Equihopper: Moves along any line over another unit of either color to a square situated such that the hurdle stands at the mid-point between the Equihopper’s departure and arrival squares. The English Equihopper cannot pass over an obstruction other than the hurdle when playing along Queen-lines. The non-stop/French Equihopper does not have this restriction. Unless otherwise stated, the non-stop Equihopper is meant.

There is a choice of route in both phases as White could reach capture square in two different ways, but there is interplay with bEQ ie in a) 1…b4? and in b) 2…a5? (Author)
