THE AWARD

Tzuica Tourney 2019

IN THE FRAMES OF WCCC 2019

69 problems by 35 composers from 14 countries have taken part in this tourney. We initially thought that the theme was rather difficult, but the number of entries seems to have proven that we were wrong. As usual we awarded problems that showed the theme intensively and we praised rich strategy as well as a good and pleasant construction, with all white or black officers used in the solutions. Interplay must also play a role in the solution. Some entries with small constructional blemishes, such as unused white / black figures in at least one phase have been sadly left out of the present award. We hope, however, their authors will be able to find out improved settings and even win prizes in other tournaments.
