No.54 – 10-14 Jul-2012 – On the 10th of July I had a meeting with Michael Grushko, the editor of Variantim, in Riga.  It is always nice to meet in real life! Now I know whom I send problems! 🙂  At this meeting Michael told me that if I will send an original till 15-Jul, then it will be published in August’s issue of Variantim. What I like is a fast publication! (I also promise it for everyone at julasfairies.com.) So, I was in time, and now I’m a happy owner of this magazine!

Specific Indian theme with Locust and sacrifices of the black Rooк on the critical squares. Self-pins of neutral Nightriders as forward battery-pieces. Interchange of functions between neutral Ns.

    Excellent idea ! But perhaps it would be more striking if a neutral queen had made these long critical moves ! (hm…. in a h#2.5 perhaps).
