Original Problems


21st-22nd of May, 2018

  • (22.05) No.1299 – Aleksey Oganesjan (#1). Author believes that this “retro-mini-problem” can be related to Retro section.
  • (21.05) No.1261.3 – Günther Weeth (-18 & #1 Proca Retractor ; Anti-Circe Calvet). On the occasion of the fairy chess friends’ meeting at Andernach (10.- 13.05.2018) both Kjell Widlert and Dirk Borst told me about the dual in JF 1261.2 (17.Ke4-f5, Sd7-f6+ 18.Bc5 and Bf6-d4 etc.). So another attempt at saving the problem turned out to be necessary. I do hope that now the job has successfully been done, after all that confusion on my side. Let me again apologize for causing so much trouble and let me warmly thank you for all your attention and patience. (Author)
