Old Pawn Searching Mountain Checkmate 老卒搜山 (lǎo zú sōu shān)

When the pawn has reached the enemy's bottom rank, it can only move sideways or traverse in Xiangqi. It would usually be considered to be next to useless.

However, if there are other pieces available for attack, it can still force a checkmate. Enjoy!
