5 Hardest Mate-in-2 Ever: Part 2 E-mail
Written by Yury Markushin   
Wednesday, 17 September 2014 00:00

hardest mate in 2: part 2Solving 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!
