Weekend Chess Tactic Test: Three Chess Puzzles!

Chess tactics help you capitalize on all the effort you put into improving your position. Here are three positions from real games. Can you figure out the best way to win? Test your chess tactics this weekend with Chess King!




Position 1: White to play and win. Mendoza-Diaz, Colombia, 1996. Should White retreat the Bishop from h6 as the mate threat on g7 is thwarted by the Black Queen on f6? Check your answer with Chess King.



Position 2: White to play and win. Balinov-Cebalo, Graz, 1996. This position has an unusual tactical idea that is normally difficult to spot. Can you find the trick move for a win? Check your answer with Chess King.




Position 3: White to play and win. Alekhine-Reshevsky, Kemeri, 1937. Black is not only a pawn up but is training forces on the g2 pawn. However, Rd2 by Black was actually a blunder. Do you know how Alekhine goes on to win? Check the answer with Chess King.
