Happy Birthday to Krassimir Gandev!

gandev(21.03.2013) Today is IM Krassimir Gandev's Birthday! He is one of the best bulgarian composers and I wish him good health, a lot of happyness and success! Many of us know about his fairy chess masterpieces, but he composing in all genres and here you can see some examples.

No.2 is very nice. It is not at all evident why different continuations are forced. Each defence at f5, contains deep motivation for the second white move. The battery play is just brilliant. Would have done well in 9-WCCT !

Oh, you are right! I didn't saw that the problem n.2 is with 9-WCCT theme and presents four thematic variations with black defences on the same square on B1 and white answers by the same front battery piece on W2.
