MONROI PCM - FOR EVERY CHESS PLAYER - AD
HIGH SCHOOL CHESS #28 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Fri, Apr 29 2011 (11:48)
Dr. Alexey Root (me!) had students try the following Bruce Pandolfini problems: White: Ke6 and Qe2 vs. Black: Ke8 mate in 2, White to move. Then White: Ke6 and Re2 vs. Black: Ke8 mate in 3, also White to move. Then I showed the YouTube video where Pandolfini explains how to solve these type of problems (Chess Now, Episode 41, about 19 minutes into the episode.) Then I had students try Giambattista Lolli, 1763, White: Kc6, Qd6 Black: Ka7, Rb7, White to move. Themes: Defender has few moves (like in the Pandolfini problems), zugzwang, separate K and R to win rook, and checkmate.

Chess Quotes


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