The study below is dedicated to the 70th birthday of Yochanan Afek.

"This study was inspired by an analysis of a recent game.

See:

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2022/apr/15/chess-teenagers-top-reykjavik-while-english-hopes-fade-at-the-finish

(diagram 3811: Johann Hjartarson against Mats Andersen, Reykjavik 2022)

Yochanan is a very strong OTB player and a great composer. We hope he will like this game-like study! Happy birthday to our friend Yochanan!"
