I presented a problem featured in my forthcoming book Thinking with Chess: Teaching Children Ages 5-14 (Mongoose Press, 2012). Here’s the problem, which I borrowed from Guliev, S. (2003). The manual of chess endings. Moscow, Russia: Russian Chess House: White: Kg6, Ne6, Nd6. Black: Kh8. What is the result with White to move? Now insert a black pawn on a6, with all other chessmen the same and White to move. What is the result now? Denton High School students especially liked working on this problem.

And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
