21th TT Chess Composition Microweb C 5.5.2007

Our previous 20th TT Chess Composition Microweb was not so successful as many precedent and I have almost decided to stop the organization of tourneys. However, the response from readers to my question has persuaded me that there is still place for my regular tourneys, even if fairy chess tourneys are nowadays very popular and almost at any time there is more than handful running. Hopefully I will be able to come up with interesting themes often enough.

As is already usual, the theme presented in the TT CCM is coming from my quite long list of (in my view) interesting themes. I am updating it when I come across something flexible and fairy enough to deserve looking at. For the first time I have "discovered" the chosen theme when I was composing for the Wola Gulowska 1998. Polish tourney regularly includes section for fairy s#2 and that year it were s#2 in Madrasi. I have got the 1st Commendation there and later I have published one more problem with the same thematic element in Phénix 1999. Then it appeared even in the last commended twomover in 6th TT CCM.

Who can guess the theme now? Well, here it comes...
