Part №17. Let's stir a brain crinkle?!

With today's release of a chess heading we give start to a new marathon which will pass in 4 tours. And the «analysis of flights» and technical results of the previous marathon we’ll give in the following release.

So, accept a portion of "chess nuts» of a new competition!


I’m not sure that you, dear marathon racers, will turn out to find a mate in two moves in the problem №1 without anybody’s help... To fulfill the task, remove from a board one of the figures!


The first move of the White king was obviously not there where it was necessary … Return a move of the White king on the diagramme №2 and show a mate in three moves. Please, do not miss the answers of the Black parrying the mate- threat of the White!

Drawn game

If you turn out to make a drawn game in this position №3, the leader of a chess marathon will be strongly surprised. … But if you move a White pawn «d5» on the other field of the 5th horizontal and carry out the task, the leader will be only glad!

№4. A chess question
At the beginning of 1983rd (it is quite in a year after the disintegration of their well-known group!) these two musicians arrived to Moscow on purpose to get acquainted better with the country’s atmosphere about which there will go in their new piece of music … Who are these two musicians, and what have they conceived?

For the beginners of a chess marathon I give electronic co-ordinates where it is necessary to send answers to the tasks: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Your heading leader, Honoured Chess Master of Sports of Ukraine Sergey Tkachenko.
