Dear chess friends,

I'm presenting here in advance the Award of the Roberto Osorio 55JT.

I agreed with the Editors of Die Schwalbe and Orbit to proceed this way in order to assure the
problems to be published in 2012. This publication shows just FEN positions and solutions.
The complete Award will be published in the magazines.

I apologize for the large delay in doing this.
