The tourney celebrated the 50th birthday of the Slovak composer Ivan Garaj (* 18.8.1943 in Trenčín).

A logical problem built on Siers-battery play. The mainplan 1. Nf8+ Kd4 2. Bc3+ Kxc5 3. Nd7#?? still fails to the flight 3.. Kd6! Therefore in a foreplan a 'Beschäftigungslenkung' (decoy to keep the opponent busy) is used to bring wPg2 in three moves to e5: 1. gxf3 (threat 2. Nf4+ 3. Ne2# and 1.. c1N 2. Nd1 3. Nc3# or Ne3#) Bd3 2. f4 (threat 3. Ng5+ 4. Nf3#) Be2 3. fxe5 (threat 4. Nf4+ 5. Nxe2#) Bd1 (Bg4, Bh5, c1N) after which the mainplan succeeds. There are some side variations of shorter length, like 2.. e4 3. Kxg6 (threat 4. Ng7+ 5. Nxf5#) e3 4. Ng5+ 5. Nf3#. It is nice how White is chasing the bB which is kept busy to defend the squares e2 and f3. All threats and the mainplan feature the Siers-Rössel. Published in: TT GARAJ 50 1994.
