The Open Tournament was conducted by Dinu-Ioan Nicula and the ECSC by Ryszard Królikowski. The full results, the problems and their solutions are available here.
The selected compositions was of a well-balanced difficulty with the studies and moremovers in the ECSC creating most of the headaches to the solvers.
The events were conducted flawlessly and WFCC is grateful to the Romanian organizing team for hosting the championship in the booming Iasi and for providing a nice hotel and a very convenient solving hall.
