How is the white knight (at the top of the board) reaching the middle square?  I don't see any path to it.

This is an awesome game, btw, one of my favorites on the site.

*Edit:* I guess the empty quarter-circle shaped non-space below the white knight is counted as orthogonically adjacent to the curved space the knight is occupying, and then diagonally away. It might be better to clearly say that empty squares can be counted as a space to be leaped over. I assumed they were just non-existent.
