Note for Coaches, Parents,
Teachers, and Trainers
By solving the problems in the first volume of this series, students reinforced
their basic knowledge of the rules of the game and got a feel for the relative
strengths of the pieces. By solving the problems in the second collection,
students acquired their first skills at checkmating the king, and learned to quickly
give mate in one in simple positional setups.
With the problems in the third collection, we aim to: 1) help students to
see patterns in multi-piece positions in the opening and the middlegame; 2)
teach students to use important tactical tools such as pins, discovered checks,
and double checks to deliver mate; 3) familiarize them with the typical mating
scenarios that arise no later than the 16th move of the game in various chess
openings primarily in those that beginners play at first (mainly the open and
half-open games); 4) teach them to develop a feel for the smallest changes in the
position of the pieces (to this end, we offer pairs of middlegame and endgame
situations in which a slight difference in the initial position leads to different
mechanisms for achieving mate); and 5) provide practice in giving mate in six-
and seven-piece pawn, minor-piece and major-piece endings.
Mate-in-one problems are still an underestimated theme in the training of
novice chessplayers. The inability to quickly find an opportunity to give mate in
one in any position has a negative effect on a players development. The majority
of modern games end with both players short on time (in time trouble), and in
those conditions the one whose skill at giving mate in one has become automatic
enjoys a serious advantage. But not knowing just one of the typical mating
setups, or being unable to see it in a complicated piece arrangement, often leads
to defeat even for the experienced player.

Mate in One in the Opening
Approaching the Opening
Two Pieces Against a Whole Army
White to move: Black has all of his troops on the board, and aside from the king, White has just
one piece. But this piece turns out to be stronger than the whole enemy army.

Three Pieces Against a Whole Army
White to move: Besides the king, White only has two pieces, and Black has his whole army frozen
in its starting position. White mates him, and there are two ways to do it in each position.
