  • Chess Composition: ChessProblems.ca tourneys

    The (only!) Canadian website for chess composition http://ChessProblems.ca organizes annual informal online tournaments for series-movers of any type and with any fairy conditions and pieces. Please see related details, list of participants, previous tournaments results and published original compositions at http://Originals.ChessProblems.ca

    From time to time, ChessProblems.ca also organizes formal thematic tournaments. The 4th thematic tournament (ChessProblems.ca TT4), requiring series-movers with not more than four units featuring four-corners echoes, is now in progress (the deadline for submissions is March 31st, 2013). For details and examples please visit http://TT4.ChessProblems.ca

    If there is any interest, I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have!

      I have recently become aware of the chessproblems.ca bulletin. It concerns series-movers of any type and with any fairy conditions and pieces.

      There are now 13 issues available on line in the pdf format.

      http://bulletin.chessproblems.ca

      The latest number is Issue 13, December 2017. What is extraordinary is the artistic visualizations of moves. I shouldn’t mind at all having a framed coloured Hilbert curve on my wall!

      I suspect that most practical players will find the magazine bewildering but it appears to be a fine technical effort.

      The last page of Issue 13 has a fine colour photo of Zoltan Sarosy, which is worth the look.

        Thanks for reviving this old thread! I must have bookmarked that site but I don't recall checking out the bulletin(s) ...
        I have browsed through some of them and they are very nice indeed. I have long had an interest in the problem/composition side
        of chess but have not really tried my hand at it - perhaps it is time to look into that a lot closer!

          Try the Rebus. Canadian Jeff Coakley has composed some excellent examples and it's a fun way to enter the nether world of chess composition and heterodox chess.
