7th WCCT – Protests

7 W C C T 2001-2003



The closing date for replies to protests – 01.11.2003

Certain changes regarding the judging countries were decided upon in Moscow: 1. Three-movers section: USA is judge instead of Rumania. Russia is reserve judge instead of Italy. 2. Helpmates section: Great Britain is judge instead of Bosnia-Herzegovina. USA is reserve judge.

To the attention of the judging countries in sections B (3-movers) and F (Selfmates) of the 7th WCCT Some of the incoming protests make it necessary to elucidate the term “sacrifice” which is part of the definition of the 3-movers and Selfamtes themes, as follows: The use of the term “sacrifice” in the context of these themes should not be confused with its everyday usage in the domain of the over-the-board game. This mostly concerns situations where, while sacrificing itself, the sacrificed piece captures another piece equal to or higher in value than itself (e.g. a sacrificed Knight captures a Knight, or a sacrificed Rook captures a Queen). In the over-the-board game such cases are usually not considered real “sacrifices” but rather “exchange of pieces”, “material gain” etc. However, in the case of themes B and F this is not so. “Sacrifice” in the framework of these themes, comes simply to indicate the arrival of the thematic piece at a square where it is (or would be, as theme F allows) exposed to a capture, regardless of the way it does so. Thus, if it does so while capturing another piece of a “higher value”, the move is still considered a thematic sacrifice.
