22nd TT Chess Composition Microweb C 11.11.2007

Our previous 21st TT Chess Composition Microweb had the theme specific to one fairy condition - Madrasi Rex Inclusiv. I have quite a few similar themes in my long list of interesting ideas. Among them there is one specific to locusts (or similar pieces) - battery from behind. And that is the theme.


Chess Composition Microweb announces formal thematical tourney for any problems using locust-like fairy pieces ("normal" locusts, rook locusts, bishop locusts, but also marine pieces like triton, nereide, etc. - it is important that they capture by jump over captured piece and land on some other empty square), in which there is present in the diagram or created during play a battery of the following kind: wLa1 - bKd4 - wSe5, where any jump of knight behind king causes check by locust. A mate is given from that battery. (See examples if anything is unclear.)

Judge: Michal Dragoun (Czechia)

Any stipulations and any fairy elements are allowed.

Entries should be sent by email to juraj.lorinc@bigfoot.com before November 11th 2007. The award will be published at Chess Composition Microweb.

Please, let know your friends about our competition!

Stručný slovenský preklad temy: turnaj je vypísaný pre akékoľvek exoproblémy s použitím bĺch a podobných kameňov, ktoré berú preskočením súperovho kameňa a doskočením na iné voľné pole. Na diagrame existuje alebo sa v priebehu hry vytvorí batéria typu bBLa1 - čKd4 - bJe5, v ktorej ľubovoľný odskok Je5 spôsobí šach čiernemu kráľovi. Mat je z tejto batérie.
