Memorial Tourney Anton Preinfalk (1911-2011)

Chess federation of Slovenia announces a tourney in memory of our oldest composer who recently passed away in his hundredth year. He was active as a composer until his very last days. He published more than 200 problems of all genres; his first original was published in twenties of the previous century! He entered the national team with endgames for the WCCT when he was over 90 years old. For the last twenty years he tried to compose a correct 100 $ helpmate, his best achievement was the position with only two black promoted pieces.
