Very sad news from Israel - Hillel Aloni passed away yesterday


The funeral will be held today at his town of residence, Netanya. Our condolences to Yoel (Hillel's twin brother) and his family.
Hillel's contribution to Chess Problem Composition in Israel was huge. Briefly, he is the father of endgame studies in Israel, edited the studies sections in our magazines (Shachmat, Haproblemai & Variantim) and raised so many talented study composers.

The Aloni Jubilee tourney we announced will now, sadly, be: Hillel Aloni Memorial Tourney for studies published in Variantim this year. Prize fund of at least $300, judge Ofer Comay.

Our hearts are with Yoel, Hillel's twin brother. This is a reminder that the #3 problems published in Variantim in 2016-2017 will take part in Yoel Aloni 80 Jubilee Tourney with a prize fund of at least #300.

I was never a studies guy as such. But the best read in the monthly Shahmat was always Hillel's column -- each new original study *an event*, an expertly narrated action-packed tale you simply could not put down, Hillel's excitement utterly contagious.
