Problem 209: Kenneth Solja - Fairy (Eagle, KoKo)

solja(30.06.2013) Good effects in this new fairy original by Kenneth Solja from Finland.


1…EAg8 2.EAb1 EAa7 3.EAh7 Kg7 4.EAg6 Kf6

5.EAf5 Ke5 6.EAe4 Kd4 7.EAd3 Kc3 8.EAda2 EAb2# 

Eagle (EA): like a Grasshopper [hops on Q-lines over any one unit (the hurdle) to the next square beyond] but pivots 90' (to either side) at the hurdle.

Kоko Chess (Contact Chess): a move is legal only if the arrival square is adjacent to any piece, this applies also to the capture of king.

Probably ... 8.EAda2 (as both white eagles are able to move to a2)

Hello Dmitri !

Yes, you are correct. Eagle from d3 moves through EAb1 to a2.
Thanks for noticing!
