  1. I have the impression that the h#2 is not by Érsek, but by the late Attila Benedek (9641, Schach-Echo June 1978). A more economic version of this problem by Karlheinz Bachmann (6q1/8/8/2b5/2RSk3/5S2/3K2B1/8, h#2 2111) received the 1 HM in that tourney.

    1. OK, the author may not be correct in YACPDB.
      Another Ersek problem has been quoted in replacement (P0557187 in the PDB).

  2. Willem Korteling was a professional painter.
    He also composed very elegant chess studies, which are also attractive for
    the solvers.
    On the arves Website are published a selection of his studies
