No.924 by Vladislav Nefyodov – AUW with Cyclic Zilahi. (JV)

Definitions:

Circe: Captured units (not Ks) reappear on their game-array squares, of the same colour in the case of pieces, on the file of capture in the case of pawns, and on the promotion square of the file of capture in the case of fairy pieces. If the rebirth square is occupied the capture is normal.

Anti-Circe (Cheylan): When a piece captures (including King), it must come back to its rebirth square. If this square is occupied, the capture is forbidden. A Pawn capturing on its promotion rank promotes before it is reborn. The captures on the rebirth square are forbidden.

In the solution where pawn promotes to rook, isn’t there a possibility to change the move order:
1. nPc1=nR+ nRb1 2. nSc3 nSxb1(+nRa8)#
or the rook can be captured also in d1:
1. nPc1=nR+ nSc3 2. nRd1 nSxd1(+nRa8)#

In Anticirce type Cheylan, a piece can’t capture on its rebirth square.

Sorry, I don’t understand this because in solution:
1. nPc1=nR+ nRb1 2. nSc3 nSxb1(+nRa8)#
I have only changed W1 and B2 moves places, all these moves are happening also in author’s solution although knight is capturing to b1 which is it’s rebirth square.

Why then solution:
1. nPc1=nR+ nSc3 2. nRd1 nSxd1(+nRa8)#
isn’t possible?
There is nothing capturing to it’s own rebirth square.

Because there’s a typo in the solution, Rb1 should be Rd1.

So this is correct solution:
1. nPc1=nR+ nSc3 2. nRd1 nSxd1(+nRa8)#
?

Yes (last moves are 2. nRcd1 nSxd1(nSd1→b1)(+nRa8)# to be precise).
