A Fairy Chess Problem: Symmetric Sissa

Copyright (c) 1998 by Ben Good

Last updated 8/8/98

This innocent-looking position is from an actual game of symmetric sissa played between myself and the game's inventor, Carlos Cetina. It is an interesting problem because it is a good example of the interesting combinations that can occur with the sissas. Incidentally, I was White in this game.

If you give up you can email me for the solution.
