Spisska Borovicka - 22nd theme tourney C 21.10.2010

Peter Gvozdják announces his 22nd thematical tourney Spisska Borovicka, competition for all kinds of original problems in 2 moves (#2, =2, h#2, s#2, r=2 etc...). Twins, more solutions, promoted pieces and also all kinds of fairy pieces and/or conditions are allowed.

The following theme is required:
  1. At least one white or black Umnov move. For purpose of this tourney, use the free definition of "Umnov move": A move is played to the square which the opposite side has just left. Pawn can be used as thematic unit, too.
  2. Additionally, there must be any cyclic idea (not necessary to be a CYCLONE!).

Important: only computer-tested (C+) problems will be accepted.

The judge: Juraj Lörinc.

There are two ways of entering:
  1. You may send the entry by e-mail to Peter Gvozdják at peter.gvozdjak@gmail.com. In that case the entry should be received latest on October 10th, 2010.
  2. You may also give your problems at Crete congress personally to Juraj Lörinc. In that case he should receive your entry before Thursday October 21st, 2010, 9.30 P.M.
