Dear composers, I’m happy to announce our judge for informal fairy tournament JF-2023 – the well known Indian composer Seetharaman Kalyan! I believe everybody knew Seetharaman as one of the most active members of chess problem society. Have to mention that Seetharaman was also one of the first visitors of just created Julia’sFairies website in April 2012, the one who was always ready to comment some new publications, to support any new ideas. Currently Seetharaman is editing fairy section of The Problemist. One of his most known inventions is Super Guards fairy condition (2012; 14 problems with SuperGuards published on JF). Composes problems in all genres. Age 74.
I’m very grateful to Seetharaman for his support and his good will in doing this job for JF!
