Conclusion

Well, here is the end of another great tournament, which I hope the contestants loved as much as I.

Thank you very much to all the contestants who produced many masterpieces and lovely ideas, and with which I had great interactions as always. Congratulations also to all those who got to 1st place in any, or even several of the themes, that is no small feast.. and Cornel even winning 4 of them after a great battle !

Theme B was maybe the most peculiar one. It was not clear how it would go at the onset, but it went more than well to say the least.

The level of creativity was over the board really.. I would encourage those who look at the following results, to maybe try and solve them first before looking at the solution.

Each theme was very different from the next, and was great to follow from behind the scene. Most entries differed greatly from composer to composer.

And there were also many quite interesting problems and ideas especially in the beginning which “did not make it” in the results, since there is only one possible. Those could probably be worked on for other tournaments and magazines.

There were a few questions, about Extinction and Take & Make, and which “version” can be used. Well, I accepted both Popeye and WinChloë versions, which are not always the same and can be somewhat confusing. Most of the problems below are viewed from Popeye’s point of view (which doesn’t necessarily mean they are wrong with WinChloë), except I think Sébastien’s lovely problem, where the King cannot be captured.

I will not comment the problems, feel free to send me comments, and I will add them below those.

There are probably also many errors there, please do not hesitate to tell me and I will correct them as soon as possible.

Thank you again, and ’till next time !! 🙂

Ivan Skoba: In Section B1 Cornel succeeded in finding such scheme, which is ideal for carrying out of the stipulation. Unfortunately, Popeye ver. 4.75 has some bugs, therefore (after my meaning) only alone Cornel has participated in this Section. The stipulation (pser-h!=) was ideal for this Section and his scheme, too. And the way, how to move white Queen to d1 in so many moves (pser-h!=28), is great! Of course, final position, too. Fantastic work!
