Wednesday, 17 September 2014 00:00

hardest mate in 2: part 2Solving chess tactics is an important part of any chess training program. Today we present a continuation of the first series of 5 Hardest Mate-in-2 Ever that was released previously.

The greatest composers of 20th  century created these 5 compositions we are offering you to try. It's not your typical mate-in-2 problem where you need to find an obvious fork or a mate. Here you need to take a few minutes (hours?) to think how to cooperate the chess pieces in a single, the most effective and deadly way, to... deliver a checkmate in 2 moves. Take your time, don't move until you see it!

7 Important Blitz Lessons: Straight from ChessNetwork E-mail
Written by Yury Markushin

chessnetwork blitzNot being an avid blitz player myself I advocate the longer time control games. However, there is something special about blitz and bullet chess that attracts many players online. For example, on Free Internet Chess Server (FICS), about 80% of all games played are fairly short time control ones. That's partly due to the fact that you can play many more 3 minute games than, say, 30 minute ones. But, it still tells us something about popularity of short time controls online.
