Award: 31.7.2018,

21st century spin applied to one of the oldest fairy pieces (the earliest known use
of the Squirrel, which has the combined moves of Dabbabah, Alfil, and Knight,
is from 1683, when Francesco Piacenza introduced the piece under the name
Centurion)! Four interesting and laborious solutions, however with slightly imbalanced
play. Judge: Cornel Pacurar (CAN-Toronto)
