Moins de deux semaines de la date limite du jubilé Marcel Doré...

For his 80th birthday, French composer Marcel Doré announces a study tourney. The tourney has two sections :
- Section A : theme free, but with not more than 12 pieces in the starting position.
- Section B : the entries (win or draw studies) must feature a strong ‘logical’ thematic try in which is reached, after a number of moves (foresight effect), a position similar to the one in main line of solution, with just a ‘small difference’.

Examples (section B) :
