Mat Plus REVIEW Autumn 2007
p.183: Small notation mistake, should be (right bottom) 4.Sh3-g5+ 5.Ke4-d5 Ka5-b5!, diagram is correct.
p.186: Poor english here. What I wanted to say is that I added a few (textual, not analytical) comments to the analysis from Krabbé's book. As it is now, it reads as if my comments were in his book (this was not the case).
p.186: The link in Footnote 1 is incorrect. You have to open the folder "Show me your problem" and there you can click on "Endgame Studies". Also the website is http://matplus.net and not http://matplus/net

In generally - one of the best chess problem journals I ever read.
I found one mysterious mistake:
p. 180: Here W. Bruch should stay on the 1st place in 1995-97!
V. Djachuk achieved only 37,5 pts (you may compare the single numbers in brackets):
VD - WB
10.5 - 10.5
10 - 10
9 - 9
8 - 8.5(!!!)

The mistake was a double fault by the editor:
1) for accepting a hand-written text
2) for trusting his eyes when retyping :)
Fragment from writer's original submission:
So, Dyachuk's result is 10.5+10+9+9 = 38.5

page 164, paragraph starting with 'In no.139...' repeated twice;
overall very nice issue with high-quality articles.

While we're at it, there are some obvious typos in Iuri's article, e.g.p.156, right column: "were" should be "where"
Ok, let's rate the articles:
MV's article about Stocchi blocks can't be rated yet but it's very good until now. Chris Feathers "Krikheli's Tempo Helpmates" is good, too, but can't be rated yet.
So we have:
Iuri Akobia - very good article
David Gurgenidze - not appealing to me (it is too technical)
My article - mediocre, could be much better
Stojnic's "Kings of the Twomover" - Interesting but too technical and it's too much about FIDE album. Don't misundersand me, it's a good information but the title is not the best (maybe "FIDE album twomover kings" would do).
I'd consider as kings the classical ones (Sam Loyd's organ pipes and Taverner's famous zugzwang problem) as well as more modern ones (MV's first prized Bristol twomover from 2001).
Not read yet:
Dragan Stojnic's other article

Again in my article a mistake that would have been inavoidable in one or the other form:
The famous Saavedra position was improved (by setting wPc7 to c6) by Emanuel Lasker in The Brooklyn Daily Eagle of June 1st 1902, as Harold van der Heijden tells in EG 170, p.134
(this is no abuse, I hope, or I can't give any sources anymore)
Before, it was thought to have been in Deutsche Schachzeitung of July 1902 but they only seem to have reprinted it (or Lasker sent it to both).
