This game is also usually called Byelorussian Chess. But in some descriptions the black king is changed with the black queen. Can somebody tell me how it is played in the tournaments in Byelorussia and Russia?<p> By the way: with Byelorussian chess, Byleorussian checkers and Shabel there is also a crossover between chess and checkers which is called Esthonian Chess and seems to be played in tournaments. I like to code it as ZRF file. But my russian is to bad. In this game there is a fairy chess piece called dragon. Can somebody tell me how and where the dragon promotes to a queen and backwards and whether the promotion is an own move or only a part of that.<p> There is for an example a description of Esthonian Chess at <a href='http://www.bezlikii.narod.ru/Shashki/drugie.htm'>http://www.bezlikii.narod.ru/Shashki/drugie.htm</a><p> Uwe
