Dom i Thema Danicums hjælpematturnering 2003 (fra TD 118) v/ Zivko Janevski (MK) Tilbage til forsiden

During 2003 in THEMA DANICUM were published 61 original h#. I excluded following incorrect problem: no.9133 anticipated by Petko Petkov 3.HM PROBLEEMBLAD 1984. Because the level of h#2 is very low, I don't divide the problems in two groups. The total level of the tourney was very high. From the rest problems I propose the following ranking.
