WCCT – 11

SECTION D: ENDGAME STUDIES

Judging countries: Denmark, Finland, Great Britain, Israel, Romania.

Theme (proposed by Israel): During the solution, in the same position, White has two ways to make an active sacrifice of a unit; one is a try, the other is the solution. Any type of unit (including pawn) may be sacrificed and it is allowable to sacrifice different units in try and solution. The sacrifices must be pure: the sacrificed white unit(s) must not be guarded (protected) by another white unit after the sacrifice move and the thematic white moves must not capture a black unit. The sacrifice may or may not be accepted by Black.
