Wow! Very nice. Deserved a prize, but then Die Schwalbe Tourney is sometimes very strong.

The problem is pretty impressive.

It was long time ago but I know that I did not have any complains about the award. It was a strong tournament and there were excellent problems. Also at the time it was not common to see more then three prizes at the tournament. Nowadays there are awards with more then six prizes. To be honest I do like more the old system. I do not think there should be more than three Prizes per tournament. Everyone knows that 4th HM in "Die Schwalbe" is meaning more than Prize in some small tournament.

Actually, in my opinion the ranking system should be changed. I think that tournaments should be categorized based on some criteria (like for example average number of FIDE ALBUM points of 5 top probelmists participating in the tournament). So the tournaments should be categorized A, B, C... Z (the Z category would mean 0 average FA points). And then problems should be ranked by places only. So award should look like: A1, A2, A3 ... or C1, C2, C3.... Of course it's not so simple to develop system like this because there are some issues:
- What to do when there are strong participants who are not sending their problems for FIDE ALBUMS
- What to do when there are anticipated problems. It's almost like category should be defined once when award becomes final (not provisional). So that right average of FA points can be calculated.
- The big problem is how to manage this system. Most likely this would require to have somebody to manage this (like what Marko Klasinc is now for WSC).
