Warm welcome to the world-known Serbian author – Borislav Gadjanski!
No.154 – hs#3 – Interesting mates though double-checks! In finals play black battery and black anti-battery! (JV)
LEO(LE): Moves as Queen, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.
PAO(PA): Moves as Rook, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.
VAO(VA): Moves as Bishop, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.
MAO(MA): the Chinese knight, which is a Rider, moving along a bent line to the arival square of a normal Knight, first orthogonally then diagonally. The Mao can be interfered with on the intervening square.
Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the K’s square.
