1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.

The Bulgarian attack on Constantinople succeeds (an attack of 2 vs 1). So Bulgaria moves into Constantinople. This means Bulgaria is free and Black Sea will take it (even though the support from Constantinople is cut).

That is, if I got it right, cause your post is rather ambiguous. You mean by 'supp' that the attacks are supported, and not the defensive armies, right?

If the moves are as follows:

BLA -> Bul
Con S BLA -> Bul
Bul -> Con
AEG S Bul -> Con

Then Hyakari is correct. Bulgaria gains Constantinople, and the Black Sea gains Bulgaria.

Assuming, of course, there are no other variables in play, i.e. other supports and moves that will affect the situation.

Yes, I mean the attacks are supported.
If Greece moves into Bulgaria, then, and Greece belongs to the side that has Bulgaria and the Aegean, then Black Sea won't get Bulgaria because it will be a one on one?

It doesn't matter who Greece belongs to. If Greece moves into Bulgaria, and the Black Sea does as well, they bounce. Black Sea does not get Bulgaria.
