5 Mate in 5 Chess Compositions E-mail
Written by Yury Markushin

mate in 5This time we want to present 5 chess compositions in which you need to find mate in 5. It's a little bit more difficult than mate in 3, but much easier than mate in 12 as we have seen earlier. When solving these compositions, make sure to first  study the position and only then move pieces on the board.

Our goal is to visualize the whole variation before touching any pieces. Only then you should play the moves on the board.  That approach maybe more difficult for some players.  Trust me, it will lead to quick tactics improvements and more won games in future.

Instructions: In each of these positions White to Move and Mate in 5

Composition 1: S. Loyd, 1857

mate in 5

Composition 2: A. Galitskiy, 1898

mate in 5

Composition 3: A. Galitskiy, 1907

mate in 5

Composition 4: O. Tabidze, 1967

mate in 5

Composition 5: A. Galitskiy, 1894

mate in 5
