Petre Stojoski entered the chess problem arena in the middle of the 80s – the 'golden age' of the Macedonian weekly puzzle magazine Kotelec (Knot), whose sub-editor Zlatko Mihajloski introduced him to chess composition. In the next few years Petre Stojoski established himself as one of the best helpmate composers in Macedonia and beyond. His problems are widely quoted and appreciated by chess poetry experts, including judges of composing tourneys. He is only three points short of earning the title of FIDE master for chess compositions.

Petre prefers strategic play with capture

of white pieces, cyclic change (permutation)

of functions of pieces, line opening, line

closing, etc. Pinning is his beloved problem motif, which is why he chose pin mates as

a set theme for his 60 th jubilee tourney

(announced on page 34 in this issue). Principal features of his chess compositions (published predominantly in Macedonian chess problem outlets) are clarity, complexity, originality and good construction. He has judged 13 composing tourneys and solved in several national solving championships.

EEEEDDDDIIIITTTTOOOORRRRIIIIAAAALLLL

Dear problemist friends,

We are proud to present once again 'the best of Macedonia' through our and your magazine The Macedonian Problemist (TMP), and to do so with maximum speed and minimum delay. In this issue we publish five awards in the 2009 informal tourneys of TMP (pages 4-16) and sincerely thank the judges for their very quick and well-reasoned awards. TMP also announces a theme tourney to celebrate its 10 th anniversary and two further jubilee tourneys (page 34): Ljubomir Anastasov - 70 JT is intended to pay a tribute to the helpmate-mentor of Macedonian problemists back in the 60s-70s, while Petre Stojoski - 60 JT is announced to celebrate the birthday of the contemporary Macedonian helpmate expert, who learned the 'craft' of composing from Ljubomir's chess problem 'students' back in the 80s (page 40). Regrettably, Petre seems to be one of 'the last of the Mohicans', as very few Macedonian chess players have been introduced to chess composition in the last few decades, following the closure of the Central Chess Club. Meaningful support by the national chess federation (and some other authorities) has been lacking. Nevertheless, a way ahead

per aspera ad astra has been opened up

thanks to the editorial and publishing work of

birthday

was marked by the gathering together of the remaining handful of Macedonian chess problem composers in his house (page 33). In this issue Dragan Stojnić, one of the world's leading twomover composers, provides his observations (with piquant background information) on two paradoxical themes featuring play by four knights on the same square. Mr Stojnić's article suggests that new discoveries are there to be made despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles and that the twomover field is not as exhausted as someone might think (luckily he did not think so when creating his own masterpiece, much praised in the #2 award on page 5).

Aleksandar Popovski, whose 78

On page 39 we publish an obituary of the late Attila Benedek and express condolences to our Hungarian friends on their loss. Last, but not least, please, note that the magazine needs your support: your good quality originals and articles are sought in order to justify the magazine's motto, while subscription fees (also payable through book/magazine exchange) are needed to support the cost of printing and delivery of the magazine.

Attila Benedek was a long-term Chief of the Hungarian Chess Problem Committee, Hungarian delegate to PCCC, Vice-President of PCCC and then its Honorary Member. '

),

[available at http://www.magyarsakkszerzok.com/Attila%20Benedek_That-s%20all.pdf]. In the book he also expressed his personal views regarding various aspects and elements of chess composition, such as the 'orthodox' status of certain genres ("Unimportant but interesting"), unneccesary pieces which only 'decorate' the content and thus can be either removed or replaced by weaker pieces ("Weasel phenomenon"), judging errors ("The judge is also human"); etc. His 'defence' against possible criticism for producing the book (elaborated in an inspired foreword) is based, among other reasons, on his personal approach of composing for his own pleasure, as well as for enjoyment of others.

In 2007 he placed on web an electronic book with 200 problems titled 'That's all

6 TH INTERNATIONAL CHESS SOLVING CONTEST, JANUARY 24 TH , 2010

The 6 th International Chess Solving Contest (ICSC) was held on January 24 th , 2010 simultaneously in 30 countries. It was organized by local controllers and supervised by the director Peter Bakker. 281 solvers competed in two categories: experienced solvers (198) and weaker, less experienced solvers and youth (83). The preliminary results were published on the PCCC's web site (http://www.sci.fi/~stniekat/pccc/isc10.htm). The top-40 table in the first group is given below.

In the first place, I want to thank the editor Zoran Gavrilovski for entrusting me with the responsibility of judging the tourney and for his inexhaustible enthusiasm and persistence in maintaining the high quality of the magazine, as well as the excellent and well established tourney League of Macedonian Problemists. 24 originals were published in 2009. Among them were several problems which competed in the Subotica 2009 tourney (in the context of the European Chess Problem Solving Championship), which I also judged. I still strongly stand by everything stated in that award. This can be downloaded (along with the whole bulletin) from the web site www.matplus.net. None of those competing problems entered my final selection. I also excluded all problems whose content was too modest and whose originality was debatable.

     
I also excluded all problems whose content was too modest and whose originality was debatable.  

Several problems had maybe forgivable flaws, though I sometimes found it difficult to accept these from reading the eminent names of their authors. 810, though nicely constructed, hardly

justifies its existence, not because of the predecessor cited, but because of another glorious,

almost 100-year old task (Briais, Marble & Butcher,

3 rd

Pr. West. Weekly News 1913).

1 st Prize: 758, Dragan Stojnić Just as Mont Sainte Victoire obsessed the great Cézanne, leading him to produce countless depictions of it, so this schema from the time it first appeared in a masterly form (Viktor Chepizhny, 1 st Pr. Puskhkin - 200 JT 1999) has continued to inspire composers to seize on its almost inexhaustible possibilities (e.g. Vasyl Dyachuk, 1 st Pr. Wola Gułowska 2006). From the moment I saw the familiar setup of white pieces on the line adjacent to the black king, I was almost convinced that this composition could hardly be called original. Only after a careful analysis of its content and perfect construction did I become aware of the value of this extraordinary problem, as well as of the great courage, determination and tenacity of the author in bringing this idea to its ideal realisation.

2 nd Prize: 762, Živko Janevski

Correction play with no fewer than fourfold change of mate (including the set play

following the defence 1

play throughout all phases of the problem, with a flight-giving first move in one try and beautiful refutations. The dual after (according to me) the technical try 1. T c4? is not a

flaw, unless one insists on its thematic role!

3 rd Prize: 706, C. G. S. Narayanan Even though Black's weakness on dark squares is apparent, White's task in finding the

correct way of exploiting this is far from easy. A plethora of tries leads to an interesting struggle with many nice tactical effects and changed mates, ending in victorious defences by the black knights. The problem is solved by a gorgeous correction of the white knight (with a hidden motif - mate on c2). Even though the key pins a black piece (the LMP 2008 theme), it gives much more in return, namely another flight-square for the black king. In this one sees the hallmark of one of the great masters of chess composition.

4 th Prize: 809, Marjan Kovačević An inspired mechanism of changed mates and the le Grand theme following three black defences on the same square. The strongest impression is created by the changed formation of the masked battery following unpinning of the e7 pawn. In addition White opens black lines, obliging the battery piece to return, with switchbacks and shut-off mates. The nice construction and attractive play made me accept less grudgingly the unprovided flight in the diagram position.
