MatPlus.Net Forum Competitions 16th Romanian Tzuica Tourney

### 16th Romanian Tzuica Tourney

Theme: hs#n/hs=n, at least at least three (stale)mates on the same square.
Scope: Any fairy piece and/or condition are allowed
Judges: Vlaicu Crisan & Eric Huber
Prizes: Bottles of Tzuica
Audience: The tourney is open to everyone, but only congress participants can receive bottles.
Deadline: September 2nd by email hubereric@yahoo.fr, September 5th at Ohrid congress.
As usual, prizes in bottles of Tzuica.
More details: In the PDF document https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Y5Bn4sq9prW8XTVvXm7wcW9pc6sNebYW/view

Orthodox example:
Michel Caillaud
2nd Prize, TT Sant'Ambrogio 2010
(= 7+6 )

hs#3 3 solutions

1.Qb4 f1=B 2.Kd1 cxd3 3.Qd2+ Be2#
1.Rg1+ fxg1=S 2.Kc1 c3 3.Qc2+ Se2#
1.Re1 b4 2.Qe8 fxe1=R 3.Qe2+ Rxe2#

Fairy example:
Vlaicu Crisan & Eric Huber
3rd Prize, 4th TT, Quartz 2002
(= 7+9 )

1.gxf8=Q Sc3 2.Qf3+ f1=Q#
1.gxf8=R Sd4 2.Rf4+ f1=R#
1.g8=B Sxg8(Bf1)+ 2.Bg2+ f1=B#
1.g8=S Bxg8(Sb1)+ 2.Sd2+ f1=S#

So I collect from your examples that "n" (the number of moves) has no lower border, i.e. it does not have to be 4+ moves? Just for clarification.

There is no lower limit, indeed. However, as stated in the announcement the problem must be C+:
"All fairy pieces and conditions are accepted, provided that the problem is checked by a known solving program."

Good luck to all participants

A question to Vlaicu and Eric: in AntiCirce, do you consider thematic (=mates on the same square) the capture related square (for example multiple captures on the same square) or the rebirth one?
Thank you!

For our theme of mates on the same square, we consider as thematic the "final destination" square.
For example in AntiCirce, the rebirth square is the square to be considered for the realization of the theme (and not the square where the capture takes place).

The same observation applies to other conditions such as Take&Make or AntiSuperCirce.

Thanks, Eric!

The link does not seem to work (for me at least)

[ Edit: maybe if you add an 's' to http it will work? https://chesscomposers.blogspot.com/p/tzuica-tourney.html
On my Chrome browser both links work fine.]

By the way, the award has been updated with the new version of Petko's problem as he mentioned here: http://matplus.net/start.php?px=1536450946&app=forum&act=posts&fid=tt&tid=2192&pid=16797#n16797

That is strange, because the file property on Google Drive is "Anyone with the link can view".
