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

'Wij presenteren

DE PION

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 the book!!

 

For those interested the diagram with solution and my name as a winner is at :-
