In honor of Valentine's day, legendary GM and composer GM Benko presents a series of twin problems in hearts, rings and H/V letter problems. He also presents a composition to his wife Ziki with a Z and a 6 (they met 60 years ago at a chess tournament.)

He also sent CLO editor Jen Shahade a JS twin composition, which she will post on her blog later this month. 

Finally, solve his sign-off P and B. Happy Valentine's Day!
