1st of May, 2014:

The first day of informal tournament JF-2014/II! Warm welcome to the authors and the judge! Good luck to everybody in this period!

Two problems of today with a very rich content:

  • (01.05) No.539 – Vlaicu Crișan – Proca Retractor which by author’s words might be one of the most difficult Proca Retractors Circe Assassin he has composed!
  • (01.05) No.538 – Petko A. Petkov – A non-standard Disparate #2 showing author’s favorite theme in the genre Disparate-promotions!

Lovely photo! So deeply involved in analysing the position, unwilling to risk moving heavy pieces !!

Dmitri Jr. and Alex play the game of international draughts (on the flipped and rotated backgammon board).
