MAROC ÉCHECS Octobre 2011
Tournoi AN & YB
Juge : Dejan Glišić

At first I wish to thanks to all participants and neutral judge Youness Benjeloun. From neutral judge I received 15 threemovers on diagrams without author’s names.

Unfortunately, their quality was moderate. The most of problems had some weaknes as checking key or checking try, flight taking key, dual major, short threat or double threat, promoted piece and some other constructional weakneses or symmetry. The most of problems didn’t show nothing new.
I decided to award four problems. My ranking is as follows :

Participants :
Emmanuel MANOLAS (1) (Greece) , Chithathur Gopalan Sathya NARAYANAN (2) (Inde) , Christian POISSON (3,4,5,6) (France), Miroslav SVITEK (7) ( Czech Republic) , Dinko PASKALEV (8) (Bulgaria) , Abdelaziz ONKOUD (9,10) Morocco , Zoltán LABAI (11) (Slovakia) , Bernard DELOBEL (12) France) , Andrejs STREBKOVS (13) Letonie) , Arieh GRINBLAT (14,15) (Israel).

1st Prize - No10 , Abdelaziz Onkoud. As in author’s solution : Theme Barulin, Cyclic Zilahi and pinning pieces by e.p. captures. I realy enjoyed this problem !
