Original Problems


26-30th of April, 2017

  • (30.04) No.1215 – György Bakcsi & Zoltán Laborczi (s=5; Black Must Capture). Warm welcome to György & Zoltán in Original problems section of JF!
    Zoltán Laborczi writes about his co-author: “György Bakcsi has always had weak eyes and now he has been completely blind for a long time, but he continues composing chess problems solely in his head.”
  • (26.04) No.1214 – Paul Rãican (phser-=82).
  • (26.04) No.1213 – Sergey Shumeiko (ser-h#6 ; Circe). Warm welcome to Sergey in Original problems section of JF!
  • (26.04) No.1212 – Peter Harris (hs#3 ; Nightrider ; Sentinels, Transmuted Kings, Anti-Circe, Isardam). Dedicated to Dirk Borst.
    Peter mentions that Probleemblad has published many of his problems, but actually he dedicates this problem to Dirk in recognition of his agreeing to be JF’s Retro judge.
    I’m grateful to Peter too, for his care about me and JF. I have to tell also, that Peter’s words reminded me I haven’t appointed a fairy judge for the current period (01.01-30.06.2017) yet. Not only because of being too overloaded this year, but also because of my own work under the award of The Problemist’s Fairy section (2014), which makes me understand too good what a big work I’m asking for inviting a judge. Maybe anybody is willing to? (JV)

Animated diagrams use Py2Web by Dmitri Turevski and WinChloe’s graphics.

All previously published problems you can find in the subsections of Original Problems menu on the top. The judge of JF-2017(I) is not appointed yet. The judge of Retro & PG problems 2017-2018: Dirk Borst.

Some awards when viewed in print review show the diagrams completely blank and so I cannot print them off. How does one get around this annoying problem. It effected the 2013 and 2014 and 2015 fairy awards. The first two fairy awards for 2012 are no longer on the website. Can you still send me a copy please.
