### One Response to No.1268 (HG)

1. Nice development of basic scheme LOa1, SEe1, Sd1 with defences Be5 and Sf4 line closing. It was crucial to find various ways of exploting different placement of white knight. Z-26-6(10) is rather difficult theme, and the construction seems very good.

Well done!
