16 entries were received from 9 authors representing 7 countries | На конкурс поступило 16 композиций от 9 авторов из 7 стран

EN <-> RU

I have received 17 problems, 5 of them are non-thematic: in No 1 (Kg4-Ke6) thematic move does not change its function; in No 6 (Ke3-Ke5), No 7 (Kg8-Kc5), No 8 (Kb6-Ke3) и No 15 (Ke7 Kf5) thematic moves do not change its color.
Creative results show that participants had serious difficulties in achievement of harmony of formal and play content in their entries. And it is quite obviously that not all participants were able to cope with it properly.

Award is the following | Отличия распределились следующим образом

1st Prize, 1st Place - No 2, Anatoly Vasilenko & Mark Basisty (Ukraine) 6b1/1B3pK1/Np1B1p2/6p1/2pk1bQ1/p3pp2/2PPR3/q7

1.Kxf6? – 2.Be5# (A), 1...c3! (a)
1.Rxe3? – 2.Re4#, 1...f5 2.Be5# (A), 1...Qe1 2.c3#, 1...Bh7!
1.Qd7! – 2.Bxf4#, 1...exd2 2.Be5#, 1...Be5 2.Bc5#, 1...c3 (a) 2.Qa4# (1...Bxd6 2.Qxd6#)
Doubling of the theme is reached with maximal economy of phases! Pity that in 1st phase there is no play in variations at all. Also there are some shortcomings in a form of the problem. Tries showed by author
1.Qf5? – 2.Qe4#/Qd5#, 1...exd2!
1.Qxf3? – 2.Qd5#/Qe4#, 1...exd2 2.Re4#, 1...Qh1!
adds a thematic content and does not “shade” a main content.

2nd Prize, 2nd Place - No 17, Pavel Murashev (Russia) 6Bb/1nB5/8/r1n3NK/1P1kP2R/3P1RQ1/1P3P2/4r3

1.Bb6? – 2.Se6# (A), 1...Rxe4 2.Rxe4#, 1...Sd8 2.Qd6#, 1...Re3!
1.Re3? – 2.Sf3# (B), 1...Sc ~ (a) 2.e5#, 1...Sxd3 (b) 2.Rxd3#, 1...Sxe4 2.Rhxe4#, 1...Re3 2.Qxe3#, 1...Se6!
1. Rf5! – 2.Rd5#, 1...Sc ~ (a) 2.Se6#, 1...Sxd3! (b) 2.Sf3# (1...Be5 2.Bxe5#)
Original mechanism of change of function and color of move based on indirect pinning and anticipatory unpinning of Sg5 (theme of 10th WCCT). The play on 2nd nodal-square supplements the content and shows what element is mainly.

3rd Prize, 3rd Place - No 13, Emanuel Navon (Israel) 8/1p3p2/1QP1prp1/4R3/r2P1kP1/2P1p2K/6B1/8

1.Qc7? (X) – 2.Rf5#, 1...e2!
1.Qc5? – 2.Re4# (A), 1...Rxd4 2.Qxd4#, 1...Rf5! (a)
1.d5? – 2.Qxe3#, 1...Kxe5 2.Qc7# (X), 1...Rd4 2.Qxd4#, 1...Re4!
1.Qd8! – 2.Qxf6#, 1...Rf5 (a) 2.Re4# (A)
Doubling of the theme is realized slightly schematic (in the solution there is only one variation), but in a mechanism of “officers” fully!

4th Prize - No 3, Peter Novitsky (Ukraine) 1Q2K3/8/p5R1/p4k1B/rR2p3/8/1bNPP3/2qn4

*1...e3 2.Qf4# (A)
1.Qd6? – 2.Bg4#, 1...Bf6 (a) 2.Qxf6#, 1...Be5! (b)
1.e3? – 2.Qf4# (A), 1...Be5 (b) 2.Qc8#, 1...Sxe3 2.Sxe3#, 1...Bf6! (a)
1.d4! – 2.Qe5#, 1...Qf4 2.Qc8#, 1...exd3 e.p. 2.e4# (1...Bxd4 2.Sxd4#)
Precise performing of the theme in a format “set play – try – solution”. Also there is a phase with reciprocal change of defense and refutation. The key and the variation with e.p. are very good!

1st Honorable mention - No 4, Peter Novitsky (Ukraine) 4N2n/3B2b1/b2N4/1r2kpp1/2PR4/2PpB3/4rP1K/4R3

*1...f4 2.Re4# (A)
*1...g4 2.Bf4# (B)
1.Bxf5? – 2.Re4# (A), 1...Rxe3 2.Rxe3#, 1...Rxf2+ 2.Bxf2#, 1...Bb7!
1.Bxg5! – 2.Bf4# (B), 1...Re4 2.f4#, 1...Bh6 2.Bf6#, 1...Sg6 2.Sf7#
The play is slightly rough, but entertaining, especially changing color of moves f4 and Re4 which leads to peculiar reciprocal change of its functions!
EN <-> RU

2nd Honorable mention - No 10, Ingemar Lind (Sweden) 8/1K6/1p4p1/bkp5/1p6/8/1NP4n/6Q1

*1...c4 (a) 2.Qg5#
1.Qa1? – 2.Qa4#, 1...c4! (a)
1.Qd1? – 2.Qd7#, 1...c4 (a) 2.Qd5#, 1...b3! (b)
1.c4+? (A) bxc3 e.p.!
1.Qe1! – 2.Qe8#, 1...b3 (b) 2.c4# (A), 1...c4 2.Qe5#
This simple Pawn mechanism allows to predict a perspective of multiple successive changing of function and color of the same move!

1st Commendation - No 9, Ingemar Lind (Sweden) 8/5Q2/1r6/8/3p4/8/2R5/rk1K4

*1...Rb2 2.Rc1# (A)
*1...Rc6/Rf6 2.Qb3#
1.Qf1? – 2.Kd2#, 1...Rf6 2.Qb5#, 1...Rb2!
1.Qf2! – 2.Rc1# (A), 1...Rc6 2.Rb2#
The performing of the theme in a miniature (!) allows to relate condescendingly to a try 1.Qf4? – 2.Qc1#, 1…Rb2! and to a variation 1…Rb2 2.R:b2# in the solution.

2nd Commendation - No 16, Ingemar Lind (Sweden) 7K/6N1/6pk/1P1PP3/6Pp/7P/3P2b1/1Q6

*1...g5 2.Qh7#
1.Qe1? – 2.Qxh4#, 1...Kg5 2.Qe3#, 1...g5!
1.Qg1! zz 1...g5 2.Qb6#, 1...Kg5 2.Qe3#, 1...B~ 2.g5#
