1st Prize, 1st Place - No 10, Ingemar Lind (Sweden) 8/6p1/6P1/8/7N/p3p3/PBp1P1R1/K1Rn3k

1.Bf6! gxf6 2.g7 f5 3.g8Q f4 4.Qb8! f3 5.Rh2+ Kg1 6.Sxf3+ Kf1 7.Qb2 axb2#
Very spectacular and unexpected are the moves 5 and 7 which are possible because of 4.Qb8!! A queen-phoenix is possible (similar to No 8 but without check). But it would be necessary additional pieces (+wPc4 & bPc5).

2nd Prize, 2nd Place - No 11, Ingemar Lind (Sweden) 1RK1b1r1/3R1pB1/2k1nQ1P/2p3p1/2P3P1/4p3/4P3/8

*1...Rf8/Rxg7/Rh8 2.Bxf8/hxg7/Bxh8 Bxd7#
1.h7! Rxg7 2.h8Q Rg6 3.Rd6+! Kxd6 4.Qh2+ Kc6 5.Qh1+ Kd6 6.Qd1+ Kc6 7.Qd7+ Bxd7#
A strong conception. Without the bRg8 there is the mate Bxd7#. But there is no way to capture it. Therefore white plays the promoted queen from h8 to d7 in order to give check with sacrifice. A very powerful and beautiful problem! Unfortunately the wQf6 and the bSe6 are underemployed in the solution.

3rd Prize, 3rd Place - No 8, Gábor Tar (Hungary) 4k1N1/4P2p/4P2P/8/8/6Q1/5pPp/5Kbn

1.Qg6+! hxg6 2.h7 g5 3.h8Q g4 4.Qg7 g3 5.Qxg3 Sxg3#
A queen-phoenix is presented with simple means, but in a perfect presentation. The check in the key is necessary due to the idea.

4th Prize - No 14, Gennadi Chumakov (Russia) 8/5p2/5p2/2p2P2/2P5/2Rp4/3BRPP1/3k1KQ1

1.Bh6!! d2 2.Re6! fxe6 3.fxe6 f5 4.e7 f4 5.e8Q f3 6.Qe2+ fxe2#
That is a beautiful concept. The key is very interesting: why does white play seemingly this useless move to h6? We find the reason during the solution. After 1.Bh6! there is the threat 2.Bd2 dxe2# with switchback of the wB. In this problem we see additionally a change of sacrifice pieces and mate pieces. Because the sacrifice in the solution has to be on e2 therefore 5.e8R? is not enough. But we see also a blemished wQ on g1.

1st Honorable mention - No 5, Ralf Krätschmer (Germany) 8/4p2p/3pPpNP/2pB1k1K/2P3pQ/6P1/8/8

*1... hxg6#
1.Sxe7+! Ke5 2.Sc6+ Kf5 3.Qg5+! fxg5 4.e7 Kf6 5.e8Q Kf5 6.Qg6+ hxg6#
Nice play: the wQ (in set play a block) has to sacrifice itself. Therefore the field h4 is observed by black in the solution.

2nd Honorable mention - No 12, Gennadi Chumakov (Russia) 8/p4p2/P4P1p/1p5P/1Pp4R/2P3p1/1P1NBBk1/3RK3

1.Bb6! axb6 2.a7 Kg1 3.Sf3+ Kg2 4.b3! cxb3 5.Bf1+ Kxf3 6.a8Q+ Ke3 7.Qg2! b2 8.Qf2+ gxf2#
A good presentation with additional sacrifice of wSd2 and a walk of bK to e3.

Underpromotion in two variations – but without substance in the black play.
