Improvements to my old studies

Nobody will really be interested in this, but somewhere it has to be published. :P
Old version:
(= 5+3 )

Schach 04/2005, 2nd honoring mention
White wins
New version:
(= 5+3 )

White wins
(= 5+3 )

White wins

Old version:
(= 8+5 )

Schach 11/2005
Black to move, White wins
New version:
(= 8+5 )

Black to move, White wins
Additional main variation:
1...Rxb7 2.Sf4+ Kg4 3.Be6+ Kxf4 4.f7! Rb8! 5.0-0+! Rf3 6.Rxf3+ Kxf3 7.Bd7 g5! 8.hxg5 hxg5 9.Be8 Rb1+ 10.Kh2 Rb2+ 11.Kh3 g4+ 12.Kh4 Rh2+ 13.Kg5 and white wins (e.g. 13...Rh8 14.d6 g3 15.Bc6+ and the white king goes to e7).
The original main variation still remains valid, making it two thirds of a Valladao.

PS: Of course you can feel free to post improvements to your studies, too!

Dear Siegfried,
please choose the final version (improvement) of your study from Schach 04/2005, 2nd HM. I want to reproduce it in PZR-Bilten. I already reproduced old version at the covers (in April). It will be good for readers to see the final version.

They are both the final version. For aesthetics the one with Se7 is better, I think. For logic, however, the one with Sh4 is preferrable.

1.Sg6+! Kf7 2.Sh8+ Kf8! 3.Ba3+ Qxa3 4.fxg7+ Ke7 5.Sf7 Kf6 6.g8Q Qh3+ 7.Sh6 wins

However, this study isn't very good. I wonder why anyone would want to reproduce it at all...

Will I get a proof issue?

Dear Siegfried,
Of course, I shall send both proof issues to you.
I reproduced your study:
- because of 2nd HM in Die Schwalbe,
- because you were only 19 when you composed it,
- because of short and clear solution,
- to shaw to our chess players and young solvers that young person may be busy and create successful composition.
The first intention of "PZR" & "PZR-Bilten" (during 2002-2005) was popularisation of chess composition and search for young composers. You can se some workshops at: , under the 'Problemske radionice'...
Please send me your postal address! (If it is not at your website).

It is not "Die Schwalbe", but "Schach". So, wrong magazine. :-)

Ok, so let's stop hijacking the thread now. Feel free to send replies via note.

Also, I think I'll receive Bilten anyway since I'm a MatPlus subscriber.
