You can checkmate your opponent in the English Opening, Reti Opening, Birds Opening, or Dutch Defence. These 200 puzzles help you find checkmates to win quickly. This book focuses on Flank Opening games with lines other than the 1.e4 lines, or 1.d4 d5 or 1.d4 Nf6 lines. You have 50 mates in one and 50 mates in two with each color. Sharpen your skills. Look for checks. Whenit is your move in chess, you must first look for checks. If you find a check that forces checkmate, then you don’t need to look any further. Play the mate. Game over. You win. Good job. How are the puzzles easy? Because every move is a check. Even the mates in two begin with a check. How are they puzzles? Because there is more than one possible check. The author’s goal is for you to be faster each time you solve these common early checkmates. There are three levels of skill. First, you learn what checkmates can occur in the opening. Second, you learn to solve them correctly. Third, you learn them so well that you cannot miss them. Puzzles 1 to 100 are all White to move. White starts at the bottom of those diagrams. Puzzles 101 to 200 are all Black to move. Black starts at the bottom of those diagrams. Repeated practice makes you a winner. Go forth and win!
