The problems of my life (II)


SELECTED PROBLEMS 1988-1991

Since I published my first problem, back in 1988 (nr. 1 in this collection), I must have composed around eighty works. My composition work, as well my chess activities in general (including the period 1995-1999, in which I edited 29 issues of a chess magazine in Brazil), experienced several long gaps, accordingly to the numerous changes in my personal and professional life. Only after I retired from office, in 2016, I have been working more consistently in composing.

So, I discriminated three periods in my collection of thirty-one compositions: 1988-1991, 2009-2011 and 2016-2020. In the first two, I composed practically just helpmates (the exception was a single selfmate, composed in 1988, this being the only problem composed in partnership with Felix Sonnenfeld). From 2016, I started to compose some direct problems as well. From 2019 on, a little bit discouraged by some painful cases of anticipation in the field of short helpmates (h#2, h#2,5 and h#3), I decided to concentrated more, in the field of helpmates, on long problems (4 or more moves). So, I thought it best to subdivide the last period in two: 2016-2018 and 2019-2020.

I begin with the years 1988-1991.
