Juraj Lörinc 40 Jubilee Tourney C 17.9.2013

The formal anonymous tourney is announced in two sections.

Section A is dedicated to problems with any antagonistic stipulation (#2, #3, #n, s#, r#, =n, etc.) showing the following content. In a threat (main threat or threat in the variation), White plans to arrive on the line X of lion or Chinese piece during threat and exploit the activation of the line X. Black defends the threat by anticipatory arrival on the line X, counting upon line deactivation after arrival of White in the threat try. However, White exploits to his advantage the fact that the line X is already activated by the defence.

Section B is dedicated to helpmates of any length. All mates should be by double-check (or even multiple-check) with active use of pin of the black piece B. That means that without pin the piece B (other than the black king) could successfully parry all checks at once. Also, "the pin" is understood freely for the purpose of the tourney, meaning any arrangement of pieces where specific move of the black piece (other than the black king) would introduce new attack on the black king, not existing in the mating position.

In both sections any fairy elements are allowed.

Judge: Juraj Lörinc, jubilee and International Judge of FIDE for fairies.

The entries should be sent to tourney director Juraj Brabec, Svetlá 3, SK-811 02 Bratislava, Slovakia, e-mail

Closing date: 17.9.2013.

Prizes: 50 € for each section.

Let's say exactly one year (at least it was intention, but it might be incorrect).

You are right of course Juraj ! I was a little confused taking that we are still in 18.8 :)
The themes are very interesting. My liking is more for the first one. Your own examples are very good too. Thanks !!

For anyone interested in the tourney, my lecture in Marianka was full of possible examples, with some theoretical considerations as well as my views on matters. See pages 21-32 in just published Marianka bulletin at

A rather minor factual remark is that I never sent the non-thematic entry mentioned in the award. I sent a question with a rough example, asking whether such an idea could be considered as thematic. Since there was no answer, I decided myself that it is not thematic in principle. After waiting for the closing date I sent the genuine problem for publication. Probably due to a language misunderstanding, my example was treated as an entry.
