Problem 425: Krassimir Gandev - Fairy (Berolina Super Pawn, Locust)

gandev(17.07.2014) New fairy original in typical for the author style with five fairy Excelsiors, four Locust promotions and double-stalemate in the middle of the board.





Locust: a piece which moves only to capture. It lands on the same squares as a grasshopper, but the arrival square must be empty, because the locust captures its hurdle.

Berolina Super Pawn:  moves diagonally, captures straight ahead and promotes normally. May go as far as desired along the usual lines, provided that they are clear, e.g. white BSa2xa8=S or white BSc2-h7.
