Warm welcome to the world known Australian composer and problem-editor Geoff Foster! Also, I’d like to add here, that I’m very thankful to Mr.Foster for English correction of my translation of the article “HS# – IT’S VERY INTERESTING!” (P.A.Petkov), and I know that there’re many cases when Mr.Foster helps with such kind of work. Thank you!!

I’m very happy to publish this problem by Geoff Foster:

No.167 – h#3 – Very interesting four-men problem with surprising nQ promotions. (JV)

Definitions:

Superpawn: Moves straight forwards and captures diagonally forwards through as many empty  squares as desired. Promotion is normal.

Couscous Circe: As Circe, but the captured piece reappears on the Circe rebirth square of the  capturing unit. Pawns reappearing on promotion squares are promoted instantly, at the choice of  their own side.

 No.167 Geoff Foster Australia original-13.11.2012   h#3                                        (1+1+2n) (b) vertical mirror (a1<>h1) Couscous Circe Neutral Superpawns: f5, g4   Solutions: (click to show/hide)   a)1.Kd3 nSPf6 2.nSPg1=nQ nQd4+ 3.nSPxd4[nQd7]+ nQxd4[nSPd1=nQ]# b)1.nSPc1=nQ nQd2 2.nSPxd2[nQd7] nSPd4 3.Kd3 nQxd4[nSPd1=nQ]#

Nicely matched solution with echo mates !
It was Mr.Geoff Foster who prepared the internet version of the Chris Feather Book “Black to Play”! Many thanks for such a great effort !
