Quite simple le Grand based on Einstein idea of changing two bishops from try into two rooks in solution. Black thematical defence is bi-valve. The refutation of the try uses the fact that a mating move by bishop doesn't guard departure square.

Honestly, I didn't expect the problem to finish so high as it is really simple.

Personal rating: C.

Juraj Lörinc, Commended ex aequo 12th TT Spisska Borovicka C 8.9.2000, Notes: C026 Sent: 327, fairy #2 can be found here.

12th Spisska Borovicka was dedicated to Cyclone themes with castling appearing somewhere in the play. In my first try I simply ruled out rook move and forced castling by means of antibattery selfcheck (or as American friends say, by repelling effect) and used well known hurdle mechanism for Djurasevic cycle. The moose, my beloved fairy piece, again showed it potential.

Personal rating: C.

Juraj Lörinc, on occasion zacikmo-28, 1st HM 12th TT Spisska Borovicka C 8.9.2000, Notes: C026 Sent: 328, fairy r+2 can be found here.

The idea of this unusual reflex problem is simple too. It is necessary to provide for defence 1...c6. A try 1.Ke2? introducing double Salazar doesn't solve this problem, 1...c6 is the refutation. The try 1.d3? provides 2.0-0-0, but allows another refutation. The solution 1.f3! provides the other castling 2.0-0 and finishes Zagorujko and Lacny cycle. Symmetrical, but original.

Do you know what zacikmo-28 means? 28 is the age of one of my good friends from university, whose login was in the time "zacikmo".

Oho, orthodox threemover! In 2000 I participated in The League of The Macedonian Problemist, an orthodox competition in 4 sections. I composed orthodox #2, #3, s# and h# with given themes and ... I got two 10th (the last announced) places. This threemover contained the very basic form of the set theme, sacrifice of the piece that in the initial position is a rear piece of a direct battery. I'm simply not the orthodox composer.

Personal rating: D.

Although this threemover isn't very complicated, I like the way of echange of functions between white rook lion and bishop lion and the crystal-clear construction. It is a pure echo diagonal-orthogonal.

Personal rating: B.

Michel Caillaud, Reto Aschwanden, Juraj Lörinc, 3rd Prize 12th TT Spisska Borovicka C 8.9.2000, Notes: C033 Sent: 331, fairy r#2 can be found here.

I developed a basic skeleton of this problem in a quite different way and then I sent it to both Michel Caillaud and Reto Aschwanden. They were able to finish it in Pula, bringing me the prize in Spisska Borovicka. Known mechanism of Shankar Ram is made quite asymmetrical and cycles two castlings and two similar rook moves 2 squares long.

Personal rating: B.
