No.171 – hs#3 by Petko A. Petkov –  A non-standard realization of Dentist-theme. (JV)

Definitions:

Locust (L): moves on Q-lines but only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.

 No.171 Petko A. Petkov Bulgaria original-19.11.2012   hs#3                 2 solutions              (10+5)Locusts: b3, f1   Solutions: (click to show/hide)     I. 1.Rb2! LOxb2-b1 2.d7! Re2 3.LOxe2-d3+ LOxd3-e4# (1.d7?? Re2?? and Rg2 is closed! – Rb2 is impossible!) II. 1.Rc2! LOxc2-d1 2.c7! Rf2 3.LOxf2-f3+ LOxf3-g4# (1.c7?? Rf2?? and Rg2 is closed! – Rc2 is impossible!) DENTIST theme with thematic unpin of the white Locust. This combination is possible after two sacrifices of the Rooks (black and white) and thematic tries where the white Rook is closed. Another element which in my opinion deserves some attention here – is realization of some seldom or even paradoxal theme – a white battery is created, but in non-standard order: while LOf3 and then c7+ would be a standard battery, in a reverse order shown here the 1st move makes the forward piece (Pawn), and then – the rear piece (w.Locust). We can name this combination “Reversive play of white battery”, as far as we have a reason to speak about “battery” in this special case. Also there is a good play of the new black battery’s forward piece (the Locust), with realization of model-mates in the finals. (Author)
