Oldřich Duras was a leading chess player (GM in 1950) but beside on-the-board competitions, he also composed chess studies and problems (mostly threemovers) in the spirit of the Bohemian school.
Most of his studies are reproduced in the 1954 book "Oldřich Duras" written by Louma, Podgornny and Richter.
