I believe, even those who don’t have any close relations with Retro/PG problems will enjoy the introduction to this award! But what to say about the lovers of this genre?.. I think it’s so wonderful gift to all of you! Very much grateful to Dirk for so fast and interesting judgement (I have to tell that the first draft version of the award was sent to me 2 months ago, and I’m the only reason of the delayed publication)!
Congratulations to the winners and to all participants of this 2-years long competition!
The mechanism of 1298.E (Thoma) is already known, see P1070031.
Thank you for pointing this out, Paul. I had forgotten about this predecessor (I did study that chapter!) but I still feel 1298.E is very nice and deserves a Commendation.
