| Harold van der Heijden:
«Apart from other artistic merits (e.g. a theme / idea), in my view a good endgame study needs a surprise, or something that makes us smile».
| Peter Gyarmati:
«I like tactical studies».
«The work should be solvable by human».
| Steffen Slumstrup Nielsen:
«Precision and economy does not make a study. Showing the complexity of chess is not the job of study composers».
| Martin Minski:
«I don’t like computer studies with too many analytic variations».
| Arpad Rusz:
«I really dislike when someone inflates the solution with dualistic variations and tries. The real solution should tell the story alone and for analytical variations we have the computer».
