Quoting issi:
#6 cant be solved. What if
1. Bd8+ Ka7
2. Rxa6+ and now Kb8! (not bxa6?)
and there will be no combination to mate the Black king


Hi there, there is a mate in the line you've provided, but in 6 not in 7 :

1. Bd8+ Ka7 2. Rxa6+ Kb8 3. Qf4+ Qe5 4. Qxe5+ Rd6 5. Qxd6+ Kc8 6. Ra8# 1-0 ;-)

Quoting Ed Rogers:
Problem 5 appears to be a mate in 5, not 6 starting with 1.Qg8+. I think the solution listed for this problem is not correct as it starts with 1. Rh4 which is not a possible move.

Otherwise these are great problems.


Hello Ed, you're right this is mate in 5 problem, not mate in 6. I have changed the description and the solution. Thanks for you feedback!

Quoting nitehawk005:
About time "the chessworld.com start providing us with pgn file for every quiz and problem they feature. you look at the quiz and say.. I am not gonna set up this position on my chess program. and move on regardless how tempting it is to solve.


Hello my friend and thanks for your comment.

We're providing the solutions in pgn for some problems. However, if we provide the problem itself in pgn format that would be too tempting for most players to shuffle pieces around instead of thinking and visualizing the variations.

The point of solving tactics is to train your tactical vision and ability that can be used in real games. :-)

I'm proud that I found all of them, especially Lolli. :)

But I have a different solution to number 6: First Bd8 and after Kh6 you play Rxa6. This is what I thought, because if you play Rxa6 first, the king can run to c7.
