Dear Friends, I’m happy to present you the first part of the article “Disparate – a unique fairy condition!” by IGM Petko A. Petkov, which is a renewed version of Petko’s article “Les Echecs Disparates: une condition feerique globale!”, published in “Phenix” (No. 191-192, January-February 2010, pages 8086 – 8116), and is dedicated to Romeo Bedoni! Two more parts of the article will be published this year as well. My gratitude to Petko Petkov for his tremendous work and to Geoff Foster for language correction!
