30th TT Chess Composition Microweb C 3.3.2012

After the deadline of the previous theme tourney had passed, I have been suddenly shocked by the fact that we have already reached the end of the third ten in the series of TT CCM. That is why I have been thinking a bit more about the theme of the next i.e. this tourney. Quick analyses of both the submissions as well as awards have proven that help-play problems of various kinds have been more frequent than direct-play, not speaking about self-play. Therefore I have decided to push the scales in the other direction again and this time we have to have explicitly direct-play theme. Next time... time will show.

Among the themes in my buffer one immediately hit my eyes as purely direct-mate theme that I planned to use in one way or another for already long time. After consultations with friendly composers and also the invited judge I have decided to have the tourney for fairy twomovers only, but with the theme enlarged - so that the ideas of more people can fall within the scope of the tourney, resulting in the satisfactory participation. As the theme is currently slightly popular in the orthodox twomover, maybe there can be also some interesting works produced in the fairy land too. Not maybe, I am sure it is possible!
