Chess federation of Slovenia has announced a tourney in memory of their oldest composer who had recently passed away in his hundredth year. He was active as a composer until his very last days. He had published more than 200 problems of all genres; his first original had been published in twenties of the previous century! He had also entered the national team with endgames for the WCCT when he was over 90 years old. For the last twenty years he had tried to compose a correct 100$ helpmate.
