No.26 – finished at the end of January,2012 – I’d say, this is a step forward after No.25! AndernachChess and Chameleons in HS-problem. I believe, that Chameleon is not only my favorite piece, but also the one I have the best problems with. But this is my personal view, of course.

This is a task problem, and this is the one I’ve composed for Olympic Tourney. It doesn’t got anything there, maybe because of twinning, maybe because of many much better problems. I think I didn’t regret about it much only because too long time have passed from the composing time till the results of the Tourney – I’ve already switched to the other things. So, there’re also positive moments in some delays which happen in chess composition! 🙂  Although, in general, I prefer a faster results, faster publication, faster comments.. etc. – as I believe that it is not for me only, that the one has more interest and feelings to his own problem when it is recently composed.

Anyway, I still like this problem, and like to see it published!
