Around two months ago, I made a study I thought was pretty cool and decided to submit it into a tournament. As it turns out, the main idea had been anticipated and the earlier incarnation(s) were "more powerful" (according to Google Translate's translation). How can you find out if something has been foreseen? Is there a well-known resource for this type of thing?
Nah, no-one has a crystal ball...
There are collection of studies... but I guess it's the experience of the judge who told you about the anticipation.
How come they didn't write you in English
OK, thanks - I did some searching, but it clearly wasn't enough. It was a competition for a Russian magazine that I found on an English site with a list of tournaments.
I don't know what methods they use.
I collect as many as I can, and use Problemiste to check them against known puzzles.
It's easy to find duplicates, mirrors or rotations, much harder to detect subtle differnces.
Information is really very difficult to come by, it's a very closed community. If you find out anything, I'd be gratefrul if you could share i5 here too.
If any of you are curious, this is what I sent:
