Commentaire du juge à propos du 7° recommandé : Eric Huber.
This work presents an impressive amount of strategy in the first black move : unpin of black and white unit as well as anticipatory interference. The change of black pin is a fairly wellknown strategic theme and was the subject of an article by C. J. Feather in ‘Orbit’ several years ago. Choosing the simple self-block as a motivation for the 1st black move is not the best strategic option. The twinning is not too brilliant, but the general impression is rather positive nonetheless.
