In the new Paón de Rey nº 135 (July-August 2018) the reader will find a fantastic selection of positions, perfect to try to solve them in those moments of tranquility that the summer promises us. Precisely, GM Miguel Illescas has selected 10 original problems that make up our Summer Competition 2018. All readers can participate until August 15 and get great prizes. In addition to this "summer puzzle", PDR-135 includes 12 positions of the magician of artistic compositions, Leonid Kubbel. Antonio Gude brings us the life and work of this unique character. And we can also fine-tune our tactical skills and in the finals with the Tactical Test, GM Miguel Illescas and GM Jesus de la Villa Finals.
But PDR is much more! We highlight in this issue the extraordinary and very personal interview that Jorge I. Aguadero made to Levon Aronian in Mallorca. The Armenian GM surprises us discovering his love of music ... As always, PDR covers international news. In this case by the hand of GM Rodrigo Vásquez, in the supertorneos of Norway Chess and the Memorial Gashimov, where we will discover the most exciting moments, with extensive comments. To cap it off, the Chilean GM reveals an opening "bomb" that was "buried" for 18 years ... Unmissable!
Argentine GM Leo Krysa continues his series of openings. This time he shows us his recipe against the Najdorf, white whip in the Sicilian. Already in the field of the association of chess with cinema, the Leonese MI Marcelino Sión discovers the figure of a mysterious character that appears in the movie "The Imitation Game". It's about CHO'D. Alexander and it is very stimulating (and intriguing) his reading.
In short, PDR-135 is a perfect example to enjoy this holiday with tranquility!
