Dear retro-friends,

Well, there is a theoretical controversy about a possible null-move of the Hamster.
Some treat this fairy piece as identical with the Jibber; but some distinguish between them (which I find reasonable);
then the Hamster is just like the Jibber except for the additional option that it can make a null move next to a hurdle.

Best wishes,
