Supersession of P1380851

Superseded by P1380851

The 2018 FIDE laws state: "3.7.2 on its first move the pawn may move as in 3.7.1 or alternatively it may advance two squares along the same file, provided that both squares are unoccupied."

Hence Black's newborn 8th rank pawn, which has never been moved before, reserves the right to commence a double-step on its first move, and likewise White receives the right to capture it en passant as they do with a 7th rank pawn.
Henrik Juel: This un-dummy-pawn is like a pawn created on c8 by the Einstein condition
The retroplay looks wrong, what about 1... d8-d6!? 2.d7-d8=sB!? c6xYb5 (2020-04-30)
James Malcom: That makes much more sense Henrik. I have edited it accordingly. (2020-04-30)
A.Buchanan: You don't like Adrian's (: haha? What about :) then? In heraldic terms, it would be described as "regardant". See 270 on https://www.heraldica.org/cgi-bin/atlas.pl?12. I don't know the word for "non-regardant", which is the default direction for the head, e.g. most of the others on that page.
We could replace wBa6a7 with wSa6, but alas having the 3rd knight is non-thematic & distracting. The other thing I would've liked to do is empty b2 so the promotion is forced to be to D. Such a tiny problem should have precision promotion. Needs more thinking. (2020-05-01)
James Malcom: UPDATE: The position has been edited to have one less piece and a precise queen promotion. (2020-10-12)
A.Buchanan: There is dialogue here which is now orphaned by a change of diagram with new matrix. Suggest we revert to the older diagram and mark it superseded by a new PDB entry here (2020-10-12)
James Malcom: I agree-it is now done. (2020-10-12)

A.Buchanan: The point about promotion dual hadn't occurred to me: interesting! On reflection, I think it's like the tolerated dual in regular chess, where if the mating move is =Q/R or =Q/B that's ok, because it would be unreasonable to exclude from soundness all promotion mates where the mated king is not very near to the promoted unit. Similarly here, the promotion captures the opposing king, so the promotion choice is academic. Nevertheless, we would not wish to render unsound *all* king-capturing promotion moves, so we need a tolerated dual! Ground-breaking! :D Thanks so much (2021-05-02)
