Blindfold Endgame Visualisation 12/50
#12, E. Pogosjants, 1979
I must admit I hadn’t previously given much thought to the study composers who lived and died in what back in the day would we used to call Eastern Europe. That changed when I picked up Elk and Ruby’s book on Mikhail Zinar’s king and pawn studies.
The short biography at the beginning is fascinating if a little sad. Not many of us have two births and nor will we have two deaths. Zinar had all four, it seems.
About Pogosjants I’m afraid I know nothing more than the three studies that have appeared so far in Martin’s book. I’ll be keeping an eye out for him in the future, though.
RUNNING TOTAL: 11/12
