Finding my way in the chessdevelopment- and training jungle in order to improve my rating.
Again - I failed. True: it is simple if you know about it.What do you actually write down for this one? How do you try to describe it?I would try with: "Is there a mate threat?" More general one could say C-C-T (Check-Capture-Threat).But that would be to minimalistic.Good news probably is, that we can train "Is there a mate threat?" with the CT-tag "mate threat".I used the opportunity to tag this puzzle with "mate threat".In general I would say, that threats are more difficult to see than captures or checks.The puzzle would become ridiculous easy if there was a white piece standing on d8.Greetings from the Caribbean.Over here it has 35°C in the shadow!(But of course you dont have to go into the shadow.)
Wow, 35 degrees!The first question on my list is:What is this position about?There are 5 possible answers, of which mate is the first.
