1,111 One-Move Mates

This first book in the Mastering Mates series presents a challenge for players relatively new to chess and for readers seeking a novel and interesting set of puzzles. Books on chess tactics can overwhelm beginners and young learners. These relatively simple, carefully chosen exercises serve to illustrate the wide variety of examples of checkmate, as well as showing off the harmonious cooperation of chess pieces delivering the final blow. You will certainly learn what checkmate is and how to deliver it. And you will learn how chess pieces can coordinate their influence on the board.

Everyone of the 1,111 positions in this book is from an actual game. Each position has a single, unique solution. And all of the solutions have been carefully checked.

Most of these problems are relatively easy, but not all of them! Indeed, many involve solutions are not completely obvious. In fact, some of the masters who played these games actually missed the mates!

With Mastering Mates 1, you will fine tune your checkmate radar, with greater success and enjoyment of the royal game sure to follow!

Jon Edwards won the lOth United States Correspondence Chess Championship in 1997 and the 8th North American Invitational Correspondence Chess Championship in 1999.
