Nicholas Dupont's Summer 2003 Tourney

Awarded Problems

With 39 entries, my informal tournament (proof games where lines 3,4,5,6 remain free) was successful. Despite the fact that it was a holiday contest, the average level is pretty good.

I had great pleasure to solve "by hand" every entry (except the first Honorable Mention, where I had to use the famous computer program "Winchloe").

This award has no pretension to be "scientific": it represents what I personally prefer.

I thank Pascal for having been a great mediator, and Michel for having improved the rules.
