Re: tactical and Endgames Puzzles

Stu....try telling whose chance it is to play and also whether to mate in 2 or mate in 3 or whatever is it that we are supposed to do (a).

Also try posting the answers of the before quiz the next day when you post the other puzzle.. this would ensure that the people will try your puzzles and answer them :).

P.S - Love this thread :shifty:

1) Whose chance will be edited soon in the forum.
2) As this is tread for tactical stuff. So we have to play Best move rather than thinking of mate.
3) No one wants to wait for answer for next day. To ensure that no one will see answer directly i will be implementing new thing soon.
4) Thanks for loving tread. =D
