8th World Chess Composing Tournament of the FIDE
Prior realizations of the themes
Please pay attention to the fact that the problems brought in this part are
not official examples. They show prior realizations of the thematic requirements
of the 8th WCCT with the sole purpose of tracing possible anticipations.
They are kindly contributed by private individuals (to whom we heartily thank),
but you should be cautious: the lists are not necessarily exhaustive, nor every
problem necessarily thematic! The only decisive reference for all thematic issues
or claims are the official definitions given for every theme, including the
official examples and answers to queries.
