In my decision I took into account the problems that contain the same problem theme and harmony in their solution, which was also my objective in this thematic tourney and at the same time I would like to address one remark to the judges that decide easily to give high awards to problems with one solution.
The problems with repeated move in the solutions were not taken into consideration.
According the notes for the provisional award, the problem No 33 (3rd HM) has been excluded in view of full anticipation pdb/P0500669.
