Chess Problem Solving

Categories:  Chess Puzzle Games

Chess problem solving consists of a range of written Chess problems that involve finding artificial best moves and identifying valid positions.


chess problem solving involves solving the problem using the standard rules of Chess but not necessarily the normal objective. If a problem forms a position that could not be created from normal play or the question has a mistake (ie impossible to solve) bonus marks can be awarded. Time will be used as tie-break.
