Juan Zaldo

On February 14th in the solving tests appeared this problem :

Juan Zaldo
Tijdschrift van den Koninklijker Nederlanschen Shaakbond 1949
5th M.H.
(= 10+8 )

1.Qf5! [2.Q×e5‡]
1…S5~ 2.Qc5‡
1…Sd3!? 2.Sc2‡
1…S5c6!? 2.Se6‡
1…Sd7!? 2.S×b5‡
1…S7~ 2.Bc5‡
1…S7c6!? 2.Q×e4‡! (2.Se6+?)
1…Re6 2.S×e6‡
1…Qh5 2.S×b5‡

with an intensive play of correction, a wonderful problem!

I did not know this author at all, I found in WinChloe " Juan Zaldo Zapirain 1919 - 1963 "
with about 100 problems in the database, some of them very nice.

Someone knows more ?

A Spanish composer:

ZALDO ZAPIRAIN Juan 18.03.1919 16.01.1963

I'll try to find out more information about him.
