The photo report about three days of the 8th European championship on the decision of chess compositions
(April, the 20th- the 22nd, 2012, Kiev)

With what words I wouldn’t tell about the sated program of the Championship and describe a struggle intrigue – we can’t manage with bright photos. Agree that the figurative picture works better than a verbal trick!.

So it is possible to present participants and visitors of a chess feast more brightly! And technical results of the competition, the tasks and answers you can easily find on our site in the corresponding column.

And more. Not to be mistaken with the translation into Russian of the surnames of foreign participants and the arrangement of word-stresses, I have left the English variant of their writing. The sequence of representation of the participants is arbitrary …
