No.33 – composed 16-Mar-2012 – This is the 1st KoBul Kings problem I’ve ever had, composed for KoBulChess-TT-2012. I haven’t tried KoBul Kings before it. On the previous day I studied some problems with this condition I’ve found in WinChloe Echecs database. So, the next day after it, being still at work, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. And finally, on the last working hour I’ve decided to try (yes, I know, it’s not good to compose at work, but….:) ). This problem is composed in about 45 minutes. It is the first miniature I have, and also my the fastest problem by composing time. I didn’t expect much from it, but I started to like KoBul Kings condition a lot, and finishing this one I knew exactly that will have some more soon. (This problem is already shown on the site in my Thematic issue Ideas with KoBul Kings)
