abdelaziz.onkoud2(22.05.2016) In a known scheme Abdelaziz Onkoud, the helpmate editor of StrateGems works magic finding 6 solutions with dual avoidance play. A nice HOTF!

zivko.janevskinikola.predrag(21.05.2016) Here is an improved version of the 4th Prize winner helpmate by Zivko Janevski and Nikola Predrag.
Problem 735: Kostas Prentos - Helpmate
kostas.prentos(17.05.2016) Another nice original showing the WCCT-10 theme. Looking at the quality of this original, I am sure that this WCCT theme has been a success. Can't wait to see the entries!
Problem 734: Vyacheslav Pilchenko & Valery Shanshin - Twomover
vyacheslav.pilchenkovalery.shansin(15.05.2016) The Russian experts give us a sample of what can be expected from 10-WCCT!  No wonder the Russians are so strong in the  WCCTs. Welcome to Vyacheslav Pilchenko!
Problem 733: Rauf Aliovsadzade - Threemover
rauf.aliovsadzade(12.05.2016) The three-mover Editor of  "StrateGems" sends what could be a new idea in three-movers. "Full length set-play changing to short-mates after the key". He adds a Latvian Novotny for added interest.
Problem 732: Aleksey Oganesjan - Helpmate
aleksey.oganesyan(10.05.2016) The russian expert shows another nice task - Valladao in short helpmate. Despite some probably unavoidable captures this is an interesting problem!

karpov(04.05.2016) I was very happy to meet the 12th chess world champion Anatoly Karpov in Pomorie, Bulgaria yesterday. He was invited by the major of the city.

Problem 729: Luis Gomez - Twomover
luis.gomez(14.04.2016) Simple twomovers can also be enjoyable though the risk of anticipation is high! Here is one to encourage newcomers also to browse!
Problem 728: Zivko Janevski - Helpmate
zivko.janevski(13.04.2016) In problems with four, six or eight solutions, the HOTF form is suited (of course when full unity is impossible). In helpmates with three solutions the trend is probably the 'Organised Disharmony' where the relationship between the solutions is between two different pairs of solutions. The Macedonian expert continues his experiments in this form with another interesting setting where the relationship between the three solutions is cyclic!  Thanks for the kind dedication!
