An unbelievable find. I hope no one found the same position yet. I was playing for a while with an excellent solving and COMPOSING program by Vaclav Kotesovec, his famous (at least in Czechoslovak area) VKSach. Recently e.g. Daniel Novomesky was able to find many excellent triple echos using it. For me it was only ocassional trip to this territory, for computer composing I usually use Popeye.

You can have already seen my very fairy asymmetrical h#6 with 3 solutions that won 2nd Prize in 58th TT DSK. I was very surprised to find out that the same content can be reached with moderate fairy elements - moa and mao are enough!

Personal rating: A.

h#5,5 (3+1)
mao a1, moa a2

Another unbelievable find. Well, I see the play is boring, it is only hopping here and there, no strategy... but would you expect it is possible to have 5-fold echo of fairy mate without twinning and 5 units only?

Personal rating: A.

Judge of competition dedicated to fairy helpselfmates, Paul Raican, pointed my other hs#3 with Andernach chess and Chameleon chess that in fact was created in the same period as present 311. Both were originally sent to 51st TT feenschach, 203 beeing successful, 311 not. I didn't like the zeroposition as did probably the judge of the old tourney, but well, geometry and economy together didn't allow me to have simple twin or even two solutions form. The content is nevertheless interesting and different enough from 203: echo in 90 degrees rotation, many transformations - chameleon as well as colour, reciprocal changes of functions as well squares g1, f8, specific fairy mates.

Personal rating: B.

As it is already clear, I don't compose many orthodox problems. That's why my technique is not so good and the help of more experienced composers is often needed. Fortunately, my most frequent coauthor Michal Dragoun is expert in the field of orthodox helpmates (just remember our join h#3 from 1st TT CCM) and thus he was able to help me with a few ideas for this orthodox tourney. Here we see two analogous solutions with temporary unpins of wS by bK and final unpins with unguard by other black units.

Personal rating: B.

b) 1.Qxg4+ Ke7 (Kxf6?) 2.Sxc6+ Bxc6 3.Qh4 Bg2#

Since the announcement of 1st TT CCM I became more and more interested in helpmates with twinning by moving bK. This scheme with annihilation of white pawns was quite simple to find, Michal was then able to finish it.

Personal rating: C.
