This 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
Composition 2: A. Galitskiy, 1898
Composition 3: A. Galitskiy, 1907
Composition 4: O. Tabidze, 1967
Composition 5: A. Galitskiy, 1894
