Composing

Events at Imperial College started at 11:00 and I arrived a little after that. In one room GM Jonathan Mestel was giving a clock simultaneous to some very strong juniors and having a tough time of it. In the ‘solving’ room things were very quiet as the competitors had been given an hour to compose a chess problem of any type with any theme they liked. Nigel Dennis (a BCPS colleague) and I walked around and offered words of advice to the five teams. I saw mates in 2, mates in more, a helpmate in 2 and even an endgame study! At the end of the hour I collected in their efforts and will look at them with interest in due course. If necessary I will provide advice and hopefully five sound chess problems will emerge and I hope to publish them here in another news item.
