Waldemar Tura - 1st Prize Wola Gulowska 2006 [S#2]


Recently at 2nd ECSC I had a chance to meet with one of the greatest Polish composers mr. Walderam Tura. He showed me several of his problems and I did enjoy them all. It's amazing how he is composing so many fantastic selfmates in two. Who says that there is nothing more to do in S#2? I listed here 1st Prize winner from Wola Gulowska 2006 tournament. Problem shows Zagoruiko 3x2 in combination with some transferred white second moves.

Excellent S#2. The only imperfection is in the repetition of the thematic continuations after too many non thematic black moves, especially 1…R~. But can this be avoided?

note the element of Dombrovskis paradox also - the thematic black defences defending the threats which they allowed in the set play. Wonderful idea.
