Note for Coaches, Parents,
Teachers, and Trainers
This collection of problems opens a series of a new kind of problem books. Some
of the problems in it may seem absurdly simple to experienced chessplayers or coaches.
But that isn't the case-the simplicity of our problems is superficial. If the required
attention hasn't been paid in the past to the development of these kinds of simple prob­
lems, that highlights the fact that there are still many blank spots in the matter of how to
begin teaching the game of chess. This has to do with the fact that, in every country in
the world, these problem books are written by strong practical players, for whom certain
subjects seem too simple to be worth any attention at all. Such authors don't take into
account the fact that the earliest stage of instruction deserves closer attention.

As a result, in previously published problem collections, a large stratum of useful


chess exercises has remained unrevealed. The main goal of our series of problem books
is to correct this omission.

In order for the beginning chessplayer to learn to play chess well later on, the coach
should first help him or her to establish a solid foundation. To this end, beginning play­
ers should first get the feel of the possibilities of each piece separately, and also famil­
iarize themselves with the comparative strengths of the pieces. Our series of thematic
exercises with a small number of pieces on the board serves this purpose.

Problem books are written by strong


practical players for whom certain
subjects seem too simple, leaving many
useful chess exercises unrevealed ...

At the same time problems from the so-called "pre-checkmate" period play a very
important role in the initial stage of instruction. Very often there aren't even kings in
these diagrams, such that in order to win you simply have to eliminate or immobilize all
your opponent's pawns or pieces (as in checkers-play for a wipeout).

The point of these exercises isn't to deliver mate, but to acquire various chess skills,
to master the simplest methods of attacking and defending. The purpose is to teach
the student to see the chess board, to find hidden threats and connections between
different pieces, and to understand how to coordinate the pieces to achieve one goal or
another.

By using our problem book, in the course of initial study beginning chessplayers
can: 1) familiarize themselves with the possibilities and comparative strengths of each
piece; 2) learn to attack one piece with another piece; 3) learn how to restrict the mobil-

5
ity of their opponents' pieces; 4) learn to see guarded and unguarded pieces on the
board; 5) learn to deliver double attacks; 6) learn to find defensive moves; 7) learn
to use pins for attack and defense; 8) learn to choose the best capture from several
possibilities; 9) master the typical methods of fighting with the various pieces against
pawns; 10) learn to see opportunities to announce check in any position; and 11)
completely master the rules of the game.

In general, in order to achieve success in chess three stages of instruction need to


be covered thoroughly: 1) the "pre-checkmate" stage- here, students should develop
a feel for the "pre-checkmate" harmony of the pieces in both attack and defense; 2)
the stage of giving mate in one- here students should get a feel for the harmony of
the pieces when checkmating; 3) the checkmate stage- here students should get a
feel for the harmony of the pieces when using a mate threat. Having said that, the
younger the student, the longer the first two stages should last.

This first problem book allows us to work through the first ("pre-checkmate")
stage, while the second and third books focus on working through the second stage
(giving mate in one). Subsequent collections will help students and coaches to work
through the third (mating) stage.
