The results of the FIDE Album 2016-18 section E are ready!
An impressive number of 2544 entries (incl. duplicates) were received and they were split in three groups: E1 for h#<=2, E2 for h#2,5 and h#3, and E3 for h#>3. The h#2s dominated once more. In each group there were three judges with each team of judges working independently. 2228 entries scored at least 4,5 points (87,6% of the total entries, a very good ratio for such a popular genre). 400 problems out of them (95 more compared to the previous album!) scored at least 8 points, which represents a reasonable ratio of 17,9% selected problems; of course the respective ratio varies in the three groups. Full statistics are given in the page of the results.
Many thanks to the director and the judges for their hard and efficient work!
