I believe I have a day of the wonderful news! So, one more important news, especially for Retro and Proof Games composers: please, welcome your judge – Thierry Le Gleuher, who will take care of the tournament JF-R2023-24!
Thierry LE GLEUHER (France and Canada), born in 1959, composes mainly in retro genre. About 600 problems for 193 awards in international tournaments and championships. World Champion 2001-2003 of composition in retro genre. His works are often unexpected enigmas, and he favors in his approach the quality offered by the work to the solutionist. It is prudent to avoid hasty conclusions when looking for the solution. Thierry le Gleuher probably hid a finesse behind a back door!
