Solving chess tactics is an important part of any chess training program. Today we present a continuation of the first series of 5 Hardest Mate-in-2 Ever that was released previously.

The greatest composers of 20th  century created these 5 compositions we are offering you to try. It's not your typical mate-in-2 problem where you need to find an obvious fork or a mate. Here you need to take a few minutes (hours?) to think how to cooperate the chess pieces in a single, the most effective and deadly way, to... deliver a checkmate in 2 moves. Take your time, don't move until you see it!

## Problem 1: F. Kuscop, "Good Companion", 1916

White to move and mate in 2

## Problem 2: B. Neill, "Good Companion", 1918

White to move and mate in 2

## Problem 3: O. Wurzburg, "Pittsburgh Gazette", 1917

White to move and mate in 2

## Problem 4: F. Janet, "British Chess Magazine", 1918

White to move and mate in 2

## Problem 5: G. Bernard, "Chess Amateur", 1918

White to move and mate in 2

# "There Are 3 Main Problems That 95% of All Chess Players Are Facing... "

You will instantly discover how you can significantly improve your game, adding hundreds of elo points without hiring an expensive chess coach or spending 5 hours a day on chess !
