26th TT Chess Composition Microweb C 11.11.2009

To be or not to be? Or rather to be fairy or not to be fairy? This question might arise when you learn the theme of our new tourney ... or the notation of thematical problems. Although they should be Circe of some kind, there should be none (or rather very few in some cases) rebirths or even captures. Ideally nothing should hint the fairy condition in the solution. Of course, the content should be fairy specific, if possible. And so...


Chess Composition Microweb announces formal thematical tourney for any type of chess problems using any Circe variation - Circe, Mirror Circe, Circe Parrain, Anticirce, Mars Circe, Supercirce etc.

Moreover there should be no captures in the thematic solution(s) and/or variation(s). (In the direct or self play it is allowed to have captures in unimportant variations.)

Judge: Juraj Lörinc (Slovakia)

Any stipulations and any other fairy elements are allowed. 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 November 11th 2009. The award will be published at Chess Composition Microweb.

Please, let know your friends about our competition!
