Happy New Year
of all I wish you all a happy new year with good compositions. Since a month I have been working hard
in my new chesscafe: www.cafeatlantis.nl. That's the reason why Mastermove has been silent for a month
or two. During the Harmonietournament of last Christmas there was a blitzshow in afe atlantis, which
was won by IM Jan Werle. In the second round of the Corustournament he won a beautiful game of madam
Atalik with a classical mate. In the database I found two studies with this mate. Have fun.
