Each of the 80 puzzles has a difficulty ranging from 1 = easy to 5 = extremely difficult. Some problems are marked ’s’ for ’silly’.

Should you not find the solution then each puzzle has a clue on the following page.

College Bridge Series Second Semester

Chris Hasney

College Bridge Series Second Semester by Chris Hasney2nd semester contains only 11 prepared lessons, several of which can be assigned as homework reading. This allows instructors time to complete any unfinished work from 1st semester and still have extra time for integrating new members into the club, final prep for online College Bowl competition, etc. It should be noted that the rules for the competition have changed. You now have two chances (one each semester) to qualify, but they occur much earlier in the calendar year in fall and winter. Adapt and overcome.

Originally I had planned to integrate match point play and full 2/1 Game Force...

The Grandmaster's Positional Understanding

Igor Smirnov

The Grandmaster's Positional Understanding by Igor SmirnovHere I reveal EVERYTHING about Chess Strategy. Allowing you to take your play to the NEXT level.

Why do STRONGER players play better than the average club player?

Why is it that they WIN games and tournaments almost ALL the time...and some players can't even keep a positive score? The answer obviously is this:

Stronger players UNDERSTAND chess better!

No, they don't just calculate variations. Strong players don't just memorize opening lines. They don't just look for tactics every move. What set really strong players ahead of the pack is their DEEP and CLEAR UNDERSTANDING of the game....

Yes, you need to have chess talent for the highest chess achievements (over 2600-2700 rating). However, anyone...
