The Siegfried Hornecker 25 JT is held in two categories:
1. Tasks and themes (eg)
2. Kings and Pawns (#2 + #3 + #n + eg)
Section 1 is for studies only, showing tasks or themes not shown before or notable improvements from previously shown tasks or themes.
Section 2 is for endings with kings and pawns, either in a direct-mate or in a study. Note that the section is judged as a whole, not individually for each stipulation.
In each section a prize fund of 100 Euro for the first three placements (50/30/20) is guaranteed, regardless if they are ranked as prizes, honorable mentions or commendations. If there are not enough placements in one section, the remaining fund is redistributed equally among both sections. In the case of special achievements additional money prizes will be offered, orientating on the normal prize fund.
Twins are allowed, multiple solutions are only allowed if justified. There is no maximum number of entries per author. If a study shows a task or theme with kings and pawns only, the author should specify in which section he wants to enter it; for fairness reasons participation in both sections at the same time is not possible.
Send entries no later than March 19, 2011 (25th birthday of the jubilee) to tournament director:
Youness Ben Jelloun N°6 Rue 9 Hay Salam Ainkadous Fes Morocco
or via e-mail to Younessbenjelloun@gmail.com
Judge is the jubilee. The tournament will be judged anonymously, i.e. the entries will be anonymized.
