Portrait in "Dicionário Brasiliense do Jogador de Xadrez"
[Chess Notes]
Joaquim Valladão Monteiro was active in all chess-related fields, as a player, chess column editor, author of books, solver and problem composer. He was a founding member of the Union of Brazilian Problemists. He composed in all genres.
The Valladão theme is a twomover theme that requires that in try and real play the key frees the arriving square of the threat.
The Valladão task requests that in the phases of the solution appear three specific moves: castle, en-passant capture and promotion. It was the theme of a thematic tourney organized by "O Globo" in 1966.
