Today is the hardcore tactics day, so I uploaded 7 extremely difficult chess compositions. These are called compositions because they were created (‘composed”) by the master-mind composers to make your job (as a solver) as difficult as humanly possible.
Yes, these positions weren’t taken from the grandmasters games, they are much more complicated. If you can solve these mate-in-2 problems, you can solve everything . Here they are:
Instructions: In each of these positions White to Move and Mate in 2
Composition #1 G. Rinder (1961)
Composition #2 A. Ellerman (1925)
Composition #3 K. Medison (1917)
Composition #4 I. Shifman (1927)
Composition #5 A. Lobusov (1988)
Composition #6 V. Pilchenko (1993)
Composition #7 L. Loshinskiy (1961)
If you have solved these problems with chess compositions:
