Problem 493: Sebastien Luce - Fairy (Winged Kings, Anti Circe)
sebastien.luce(05.01.2014) Special fairy problem by Sebastien Luce dedicated to Juraj Lorinc where the pieces on the diagram demonstrate his initials - JL. Winged Kings are something new to me, but Sebastien inform me that he wrote an article about them which was published in Idee & Form 123 (July 2014) and it was mostly for stalemates with Winged Kings.
1.WKe2 & 1.WKe6 2.WKd2 3.WKxg3(WKe1) 4.WKxf3(WKe1) 5.WKb3=
At the end …d3 or ...f3 are impossible because of self-check by the white winged King! (Author)
Winged King: piece moving like a Queen until it reaches an occupied square (the hurdle). Then, from that square, it makes a "King" move.
For example with a winged King (black or white) in a1 and a Knight (black or white in g7), the winged King can go in f8-g8-h8-h7-h6-g6-f6-f7. In Popeye it is named "Royal Marguerite"
Anti Circe: After a capture the capturing piece (Ks included) must immediately be removed to its game array square (necessarily vacant, else the capture is illegal). R, B & S go to the square of the same colour as the capture; Ps stay on the file of capture; fairy pieces go to the promotion square of the file of capture.
