No.801 by Karol Mlynka – Promotions and mates by Royal pawn in 5 phases! (JV)

Definitions:

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

Grasshopper(G): Moves along Q-lines over another unit of either color to the square immediately beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

Bishop-Moose(BM): Moves like a Grasshopper, but on Bishop-lines only, and deflects 45° either way on passing over the hurdle. The arrival square is adjacent to the hurdle.

Volage: A piece (King excluded) changes colour the first time it changes square’s color.

No.801 Karol Mlynka
There is no Super AUW here because missing a promotion of Bishop-Moose! Therefore it is correct to say: AUW ( 4 orthodox promotions) + one additional fairy promotion of Grasshopper.
As a general trend the lack of Super AUW is often assessed as a minus of such problems.
