23rd TT Chess Composition Microweb C 3.3.2008

At first I wanted to set the different theme for the 23rd TT CCM. However I did not manage to find the suitable competent judge despite tries. Therefore I decided to keep the theme still in the pocket and to choose another one. And the theme can be summed up in the only word: TRIES.


Chess Composition Microweb announces formal thematical tourney for any fairy problems featuring tries. The emphasis of the theme tourney is put on the motivation for the failure of tries and/or their refutations, and not on the additional play in the tries (like e.g. changes in variations of #2 tries). See examples for more clarification what is suitable.

Judge: Juraj Lörinc (Slovakia)

Any stipulations and any fairy elements are allowed (thus including helpproblems with tries). The tourney might be divided to multiple sections if enough problems are received depending on the opinion of the judge.

Entries should be sent by email to juraj.lorinc@bigfoot.com before March 3rd 2008. The award will be published at Chess Composition Microweb.

Please, let know your friends about our competition!
