Coup Raphaël
Sorry, you need a Java enabled browser to view the Dame Player!
Named after the French player Louis Raphaël, this beautiful but rare combination is characterized by a sticker, a man that cannot be captured because of a majority capture elsewhere.
In the Coup Raphaël this sticker forces the opponent to a majority capture, moving one man in position, while the sticker itself removes the men that are in the way of the final capture g3-g5-g7-e7-c7-c5x.
