### Krassimir Gandev - 70 JT 2016

Theme:
Section A
Fairy problems type #, H#, S#, HS#, =, H=, S=, HS=, ==, H=, S=, HS== in 2-4 moves and Series or Parry Series in 2-8 moves with Hurdle Colour Changing pieces. Other fairy pieces or conditions are not allowed.

Please indicate the used computer check program and its version.

Section B
Fairy problems type #, H#, S#, HS#, =, H=, S=, HS=, ==, H=, S=, HS== in 2-4 moves and Series or Parry Series in 2-8 moves with Hurdle Colour Changing pieces. All other type white and black (but not neutral and half-neutral) fairy pieces are also allowed. Fairy conditions are not allowed.

Please indicate the used computer check program and its version.

Definitions:
Hurdle colour changing piece (Lion, Grasshopper, Kangaroo, Dolphin etc.): if a hurdle colour changing piece moves over a hurdle that is not a king, the colour of the hurdle is changed.

The Hurdle colour changing pieces are known as Andernach pieces. Some examples:

Andernach Grasshopper: Like a normal Grasshopper (moves along Queen-lines over another unit of either colour to the square immediately beyond that unit) but it changes colour of the piece it jumps over (except the Kings and the neutral pieces).

Andernach Kangaroo: As an Andernach Grashopper but requiring 2 (not necessarily adjacent) hurdles on the same line, and landing on the square immediately beyond the second hurdle, changing colour of the pieces it jumps over (except the Kings and the neutral pieces).

Andernach Dolphin = Andernach Grasshopper + Andernach Kangaroo

Judge: Krassimir Gandev

The Award will be published on KoBulChess.com till 30.04.2016.

Popeye doesn’t accept Kangaroo(KA) for HurdleColourChanging. Gives an error message: HurdleColourChanging only allowed with certain hoppers. Same it doesn’t work for Kangaroo Lion (or Rabbit). A pity, it would be interesting with two hurdles.
Works for Chinese pieces (LEO,PAO,VAO,NAO), for Lion/Bishop-Lion/Rook-Lion, for Nightrider Hopper & Nightrider Lion. I don’t see any list of allowed pieces for HurdleColourChanging property Popeye’s manual, have just tried some of them.

I month ago I was tried some HurdleColourChanging pieces and found that different versions of Popeye support different pieces (or some of them are with different results).
Why not try also some old version, probably you will find what you need. HurdleColourChanging (or Andernach) Kangaroo and Dolphin should be possible to be tested with some version of Popeye, because the example by Gandev published in KoBulChess 2014 was C+
(Sorry, I am not at my computer now and can not test miself)

When I use Andernach Grasshopper, it is allowed to use normal Grasshopper?

And when I use Andernach Grasshopper, it is allowed to use (normal) Bishophopper and/or Rookhopper?

Hi Michal,
I will ask Krassimir about that. Probably it can be done as section B of the tourney!? I will inform about the decision soon.

Dear all,
a new section B is included in the tourney - there other type fairy pieces are also allowed (white and black, but not neutral and half-neutral).

The Award of both sections will be published till 30.04.2016 on KoBulChess.com

P.S. Till now 4 entries are received for Section A.

The Award of the tourney is now published here:
