The results of the 2010-12 Album Endgame studies section are ready.
Our warmest thanks to the director and judges for their hard work!
At the moment we are checking the results of the selfmates section, which will be published within this week. In parallel, the editorial team continues working fiercely for the 2007-09 album: indexing has finished in all sections and proof-reading has started.
The results of section E2 (helpmates longer than 2 moves) are ready. We appreciate the hard work of the judging panel and the director, as this section always turns to be very popular (almost 1400 entries!) →Read more…
We are also very glad to inform the problemists worldwide that editing of the 2007-09 Album is proceeding very efficiently and we trust that the anthology will be ready for sale in the Ostróda congress in August.
The results of the 2010-12 Album h#2 section are ready.
The judges and the director worked and co-operated smoothly and efficiently; the 140 selected problems seem to show that the field of helpmates in 2 may not be so exhausted anyway!
The evaluation of the 2010-12 Album Retros section has finished. Many thanks to the judging panel and to the director, who reports that the team worked professionally and with a very good level of communication.

The hard-working and efficient team of the 2010-12 Album Threemovers section managed to conclude their work just a few weeks before the congress. The average quality in this section has been surprisingly high and a decent number of titles are to be awarded in Berne!
