1st TT Chess Composition Microweb C 28.2.1999


Now, after exploring the possibilities of helpmates with black-king-movement twins (here at Microweb were shown already many examples) by studying already done compositions, it is the time for having the thematical tourney, isn't it? So...

Chess Composition Microweb announces a formal composing tourney for helpmates with twins by moving black king in two sections:
a) orthodox helpmates (judge Anders Uddgren),
b) heterodox helpmates (judge Juraj Lörinc), it means helpmates using at least one fairy element (any number of fairy elements allowed).
Helpmates can have any number of phases, but there must be at least one twin and twinnings must be done only by moving black king. Entries should be sent by email to juraj.lorinc@bigfoot.com before 28th February 1999. The award will be published at Chess Composition Microweb and there is also possibility of paper printed form.

Please, let know your friends about our competition!


Examples for orthodox section: 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 12, 13.
Examples for fairy section: 8, 11.
Opinions of chess composers: 3, 9.

Many thanks to mr. Anders Uddgren for his quickly prepared and knowledgeable award of orthodox section in which we had 20 competing problems. In fairy section we had 5 compositions. The tourney was successful also thanks to the following authors that submitted their problems:
And here are the winners:
  1. Orthodox section
  2. Fairy section
Send any claims against these awards to Juraj Lörinc before June 30th 1999, please.

As no claims were received, the award becomes final.

Again many thanks to everyone who helped tourney success in whichever way. We also invite you to take part in 2nd TT Chess Composition Microweb.
