First of all: thanks to SP’s tourney director Aleksey Oganesjan, who do a fantastic work with all this TT. It is real very impressive!
I received 76 h# to this tourney: 20 h#2, 15 h#3, 21 h#4, 9 h#5, 10 h#6 and 1 h#7.
No 38 (Kc8-Ka2) is non-thematic and No 47 (Kd6-Ke8) has exact anticipation – pdb/P0583100 by Bernt Ahlgren. As a little curious: he was my teacher in 1960-63 :)
Many very interesting longer h# this time. Difficult to show the theme as a h#2 this time.
