JURAJ BRABEC 80 JT C 31.12.2018

JURAJ BRABEC 80 JT C 31.12.2018

Slovak Organisation for Chess Composition (SOKŠ) announces international jubilee tourney
on the occasion of the 80th birthday of Juraj Brabec (26.5.2018).

The tourney is announced for twomovers with changes (new-strategical twomovers) employing at least one „oblique grasshopper“ (the name “krivý cvrček” was invented by Juraj Lörinc). „Oblique grasshoppers“ differ from the ordinary grasshoppers by the fact that they turn direction of their move in the following way: moose (los) by 45°, eagle (orol) by 90°, sparrow (vrabec) by 135° and hamster (škrečok) by 180°. Utilization of other fairy elements is allowed; the tourney will be judged by jubilee Juraj Brabec. The entries should be sent by e-mail to the address of tourney director Juraj Lörinc juraj.lorinc@gmail.com until 31.12.2018. | See detailed announcement as web page and in PDF.

Quartz 44 is online & Quartz TT11

Quartz 44, December 2017, is online at:

http://quartz.chessproblems.ca/pdf/44/Quartz44.pdf

Don’t miss Quartz TT11:
Since 1996, Glasgow Chess was very poorly represented and our belief is that this genre has a lot of potential. So, we are launching a thematic tournament, Quartz TT11, for problems with Glasgow Chess rules.
The tourney has two sections: a) fairy problems; b) retro problems.
In both sections, combinations with other genres, fairy units, are allowed, but Vielväterstellung problems are not allowed.
Send problems in an unlimited number to our Director, Dinu-Ioan Nicula, e-mail: nicudin004@yahoo.com, up to July 1, 2018
