  • (30.12) No.985 – Diyan Kostadinov (hs#3; Phantom Chess; White KoBul King). Fairy pin mates with the white KoBul King.
  • (28.12) No.983, 984 – Erich Bartel. A long march of the white King with echo stalemates in No.983 (Ser-s=19; Lion; Circe Equipollents) and 4 corners cycle in No.984 (Ser-s#36; Grasshopper; Circe Equipollents).
  • (28.12) No.965.2 – Michael Grushko (PG 16; Grasshopper). One more improvement to No.965 (a shorter version) after comment by Nikola Predrag.
