hadjipetrov

(16.03.2014) For the first time in decades - in Bulgaria was held a Chess problem solving contest! It was held in Burgas on 15.03.2014 during the traditional memorial chess tournament "Alexander Hadzhipetrov".

 

The competition was attended by 26 solvers. There were many good chess players and also many talented children among them. The participants task was to solve three problems – two “twomovers” and one “threemover”. The maximum time was 45 minutes. 

Expected with the greatest difficulty proved the “threemover”, which was solved only by 8 participants and not all of them was found the full solution with the threat and two variations. 

The judge of the contest was Diyan Kostadinov, who is also the author of the problems. The assistant judge was Lachezar Stanchev. We express our great gratitude to Antoaneta Hadzhipetrova which is the main organizer of this chess festival for years in memory of  her husband - the famous Bulgarian chess player of the recent past, Alexander Hadzhipetrov.

The winner with full score of 15 points and solving time of 37 min became Hristo Getovski - one of the few experienced solvers in Bulgaria.

Great stuff, Diyan..!
Organising such events is hard work..
And not as interesting as composing..!
But needs to be done to generate interest and create new followers..
