Goldchess Non Tournament is just a bit of playing around, but recently the players have suffered from the so-called “chess blindness” a syndrome well known from tournament practice. During the last two editions nobody could find a variant of solving a problem that required sacrificing the rook. And it is really simple… and well visible. And witty as well. Instead, we have received lots of twin solutions, which indicated the use of the same chess software. As we observe, the players still try to do it although in the very beginning we said that no chess software shall solve Goldchess problems, especially with the requirements that we set here, that is sacrificing a rook and winning a queen. So you better rely on your brains and… win. Today we have offered the prize worth of US$ 400 whereas the players won only US$100. Well, the amount of the prize always matches the quality of your solution
We wish you better results
