As far as I know the first synthesis of two known formal themes in 2 phases: Le Grand (reciprocal threat paradox) - threat 2.B, 1...a 2.C, threat 2.C, 1...a 2.B - and Kiss theme (cyclic change of key and two mates - 1.A, 1...b, c 2.D, E, 1.D 1...b, c 2.E, A. Rich and true fairy motivation, I especially like antibattery mates over reborn black mao. I was a bit disappointed with "only" 3rd-4th Prize, but the quality of tourney (it asked for #2 with fairy pieces and/or Madrasi and/or Circe) was extremely high. Other prizewinners (Brabec, Gvozdjak, Aschwanden, Kotesovec, Dragoun) are all very good composers and their works were really good too.

Personal rating: A.

#2 (12+11)
1+0 lion, 4+1 rook lion, 0+3 bishop lion
2+0 camel, 2+2 mao

4 echoed model mates and 2 further corner echo mates in an unexpected zugzwang position. I had the scheme with 3 echoed model mates (Kc4, Kd5, Kg4) and Michal added 4th as well as unified by-play with corner mates. Nice presentation of Republican chess, isn't it?

Personal rating: A.

1.Sb2! zz Bb6 2.a8S! Bc5 (Ba7) 3.Sb6! ~ 4.e4+ Kxe4 (dxe4) 5.c3 Bxb1#

Theme of tourney was making e.p.-capture impossible. In this reflex mate the logic is clear, but position is very heavy and there are no complications during play.

Personal rating: D.

r#5 (11+9)

4-fold Kiss theme - 1.A 1...a, b, c 2.B, C, D, 1.B 1...a, b, c 2.C, D, A - is here worked out with unifying elements: in try mates the same type of piece as defends, in solution cycle of defending and mating piece, defences on the same square. This everything in consequent patrol chess mechanism that nicely uses power of grasshoppers. Probably my very best work (written in Jan 1999).

Personal rating: A.

Yeah, I got 2nd Prize! Only Venelin Alaikov with his fairy Babson and a half has beaten me, Petko Petkov, Alexandr Postnikov, Michel Caillaud and Hubert Gockel beeing behind me! It makes me happy!

#2 (12+14)

Simple presentation of possibilities of combining two strange fairy conditions: Köko and Maximummer.
