Received from J. Pawlicki:

I've just received very sad news - Wojciech Hubert from Warszawa died on
Sunday.
He was one of our draughts fanatic - never played draughts in
tournaments but create one of most beautifull draughts pages in web

On http://www.warcaby.beep.pl I found an old endgame by J. Metz. Toying with it, I found this one:

Black threatens to draw by getting rid of 13, so white avoids it.
1. 24-20 13-19
2. 20-15

If black plays 27-32 we get in an endgame by Metz:
2. ...27-32
3. 11-7 27-38 (or 19-24)
and wins by 7-2-7-11-16 (32-37) 16x43 (37-42) 43-48 (42-47) 48-30

Let's play something else for black:
2. ... 19-24
3. 11-7 24-30 (black tries to avoid Metz)
4. 7-2 30-34 ( 27-32 ends just like in in Metz)
5. 2-16 27-31 And now not the tempting 6. 46-41? 31-37!=
6. 15-10! 43-40
7. 16-11 31-37
8. 46-41 37x46
9. 10-5 40-45
10. 11-50



Thank you, Wojciech Hubert.
