No.614 by Peter Harris – Surprising promotions in serial problem with two fairy conditions! (JV)


Patrol Chess: A piece can capture or give check only if it is observed by a piece of its own side.

Sentinels Pion neutre: When a piece (Pawn excluded) leaves a square outside the first and last rows, a white piece leaves a wP, a black piece leaves a bP and a neutral piece leaves a nP unless 8 Pawns of that color are already on the board.

This problem is to do with adjacent Kings and Patrouille. If a Neutral piece observes the wK or if the wK moves, Black will be in check. In the diagram White is in check.
