Today we are continuing our traditional tactics training session by introducing 5 new mate-in-2 problems. I want to remind you that in order to get maximum results from solving tactics and improve your visualization skills you need to find solutions in your head avoiding shuffling pieces on a practice board.

If you cannot find a solution in reasonable amount of time (15-20 minutes), skip that problem and move to the next one. In couple hours or days, you should come back to that problem with a fresh look and mind. You will be surprised what you brain is capable of!

Another method is to briefly look at the problem you have trouble with before going to sleep. Your brain will continue working on it at night and you may find solution by the time you wake up, give it a try :)
