I was surprised to find a package from 'Corus' when I arrived back mid-evening from
the Dresden European Seniors Team tournament which was a thoroughly enjoyable event.
It turns out that my solution to their 'Challengers Event' study competition during
the recent Corus Wijk aan Zee Tournament, which could be entered by e-mail during
the tournament was one of only 3 fully correct entries.
Retirement has the advantage that I have the time to browse round such events!!
The position by Yochanan Afek composed specially for the 2010 Corus tournament is
White (to play and win)
The prize is a book
De ziel van het schaakspel'
by Hans Bohm and Yochanen Afek
I will have to get my team mate from Dresden - Rudy van Kemenade to help me read
For those interested the diagram with solution and my name as a winner is at :-
