13th TT Chess Composition Microweb C 15.2.2004
Recently I had quite good luck with the theme chosen for
12th TT Chess Composition Microweb,
I received more than 30 entries. I doubt it will be the case
of the upcoming theme tourney. However it is possible as my
recent research of various ideas expressible
using the thematical device showed it is very fruitful.
I talk about research in WinChloe database and I've
already presented a few files with this theme, other will follow soon.
Chess Composition Microweb announces formal thematical tourney for selfmates with
the following theme: white king makes at least one move during solution or thematical
try or set play.
Any fairy elements are allowed. Twins and more solutions are allowed.
There are 2 announced sections:
Orthodox selfmates - judge Juraj Lörinc (Slovakia)
Fairy selfmates - judge Stephen Emmerson (Great Britain)
Prizes: problem chess books.
Entries should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
before February 15th 2004. The award will be published at Chess Composition Microweb.
Please, let know your friends about our competition!
Slovensky preklad temy: turnaj je vypisany pre samomaty, v ktorych biely kral robi v priebehu riesenia
alebo tematickeho pokusu alebo zdanlivej hry aspon 1 tah. Dvojniky i viacere riesenia su dovolene, v 2. oddeleni
su dovolene i lubovolne exopodmienky.
CCM has now published more than 2500 chess problems and thus naturally there are many thematical
problems already present at CCM. I plan to present a few more special example files in due course.
