Joaquim Crusats - 50 Jubilee Tourney, 2016

Problemas is pleased to announce a formal international chess problem composing Jubilee Tourney «Joaquim Crusats - 50, 2016». Original Traceable Move (TM) retro-problems without fairy elements are requested. All the different TMs (or thematic tries) in a problem must be linked through a free theme either related to the nature of the move itself or to the retro-content arising after each TM has been played. Non-thematical TMs cook the problems. For the definition of TM retro problems and examples see:

a) The traceability of forward moves in chess composition, J. Crusats, Problemas 2015, January issue, p. 215.
b) Traceable moves: some elaborate examples, J. Crusats, Problemas 2015, April issue, p. 233.
c) QxQ and QxQ+ in a TM 2 problem, J. Crusats, Problemas 2015, July issue, p. 261.
d) Solutions to problems on page 233, Problemas 2015, July issue, p. 265.

You can find all these articles in a single PDF document at:

There is no limit on entries per author and joint compositions are allowed. Entries including both the diagram and the solution should be sent in PDF format to the tourney director Mr. Imanol Zurutuza at before July 31, 2016. The director will resubmit all entries in anonymous form to Joaquim Crusats for judgement.

The preliminary award will be published in the October 2016 issue of Problemas and will be also sent by email to all participants. Compositions which are not honoured in the award, if any, will not be published. The composers of the first three top problems in the award will be entitled to receive a prize in the form of an artistic chess-related painting from the Ukrainian master painter Nina Omelchuk (see:
