The 19th Japanese Sake Tourney


We received 65 problems, a new record for our Sake tourney. The level was very good overall, in spite of the lack of outstanding problems. We decided to give 4 Prizes, 3 Honorable Mentions and 14 Commendations (without order). The new condition Point Reflection, which was invented by a young Japanese composer Hiryu Todoroki, got praises from many composers as “great,” “inspiring,” “very interesting and promising.”

    About 4th prize: The Wenigsteiner award is for compositions with a maximum of 4 pieces in the diagram position, so this isn’t a candidate.
