MATE IN TWO MOVES
Judge: M. Parthasarathy
The squares on which play occurs should be linked thematically. "Play" may
mean tries, refutations, defences or mates or any combination of these.
Example I.A, example I.B.
MATE IN THREE MOVES
Judge: Milan VukceviŠ
Active sacrifices of white queen in second moves of two or more variations
without capture of black pawn or other pieces.
HELPMATE IN TWO MOVES
Judge: Michal Dragoun
The first move of White vacates the square, from which White in the second move mates.
Twins, more solutions, zero position, duplex are allowed.
SELFMATE IN TWO MOVES
Judge: Uri Avner
On its 1st move Black creates a certain damage 'X' which must be repaired by "Anti-X"
means. The need for this reparation determines White's 2nd move. The "Anti-X" action
can be carried out either by White itself (example IV.A) or by forcing
Black to do so (example IV.B). The
damages shown in the examples are self-pinning (example IV.A) and
opening of white lines example IV.B), but any kind of damage is allowed.
The variations may consist of the same kind of damage or of different sorts of damages
displayed among them.
