Congress Quick Composing Tourney

Theme 
39 compositions were submitted, a satisfactory number for a quick tourney. The average level was good. Unfortunately, some nice entries proved to be anticipated: Michal Dragoun (Kh2/Ke5) by Claude Goumondy feenschach 1981 (P0542311) and Claude Goumondy SchachEcho 1982 (P0543744), Gruber/Maeder/Rehm/Widlert (Kg7/Kd4) by Josif Kricheli 1 Pr Schachmaty v SSSR 1972 (P0527819), Dieter Müller Schach 1979 (P0533491) and bernd ellinghoven 3 Place WCCT 197275 (P0547765), Michel Caillaud (Kd7/Ke4) by Toma Garai Scacco! 1986 (P0566519) and Franz Pachl 2 Pr Boletim da UBP 1988 (P0504106). 
The Kopyl/Krivenko/Pogorelov entry (Ka4/Ke5) is not thematic, since the black queen evacuates the square d5 and does not open lines for the T/L.
