No.802 by Krassimir Gandev – Black promotions in Ser-H= with an introduction of two white moves! (JV)


n?Ser-H=N: White makes n serial moves and than goes Ser-H=N.

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.

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

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

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