superguards-logoAWARD OF THE


for Superguards PROBLEMS


I received 50 problems from C.G.S.Narayanan in anonymous diagrams. It was nice to get so many entries though the Superguards condition was programmed only in Winchloe. It is gratifying to know that so many leading composers liked the new fairy condition and that 17 of them (from 13 countries) participated in the tourney.

Many correspondents helped and encouraged me with valuable inputs before I publicized the new Fairy condition ‘Superguards’. Apart from my Indian colleagues, special mention should be made of C.J.Feather, J.M.Rice (who suggested the name Superguards), Kevin Begley, Diyan Kostadinov, Petko A.Petkov, Christian Poisson & Julia Vysotska. I thank all the participants especially Mr.Jacques Rotenberg (20 entries!) and the Tourney Director. Congratulations to the award winners. Here is myaward which will be final after 15 days. →See the Award!
