No.2  – finished 24.08.2011 – My the second published problem! It was composed for The 14th SABRA Tourney, WCCC-2011. While the 1st one has taken me almost a month, for this one I had just one night and one day. 

Funny thing about this problem: I’ve composed it at night 23-24.08.2011, till about 4am in the morning. After 9am came at work sleepy, but the problem still had some cooks. I told to my collegue, that I’m very sorry, but I have to finish chess-problem till 4pm, so please don’t ask me anything and do everything yourself as if I were not here! 🙂  

Comments to this problem are written later.
