Puzzle Book

For both 2017 and 2018, to celebrate our love of chess and the end of the season, we have put together a short booklet of chess puzzles from our competitive games from that season.
You can view the puzzles (in pdf format) here:

Puzzles from the 2017-18 season

Puzzles from the 2016-17 season

All puzzles are taken from real life positions reached in our club games during the season. To make them a little more challenging, there are no hints in terms of what to iook for, or ordering in terms of difficulty. Some may appear ‘easy’ but as humble woodpushers we know that over the board in the heat of battle, nothing is easy and some of the most obvious tactics can be and certainly were(!) missed…

Our thanks to club member Chris Tatham who has done the work of compiling the collections for both years.
