My latest acquisition from a junk shop. This is the best way to sharpen up your chess.
You have to solve the puzzle your are solving before the train does three laps.
However, depending on the difficulty level, you can increase the number of laps.
‘Noises Are Us’ do a super CD of train noises for you to play in the background.
This weeks three laps on the chess train was composed by Henry Dudeney (1857 - 1930)
White to play and mate in three moves. There is however a special condition.
Each white piece is only allowed one move, on the third move it must be checkmate.
Before moving on (choo! choo!) let’s not waste this idea: onero - eddie perez 2 RHP 2020
Here White played Ref7 stalemate. But find the mate in three with the same conditions.
‘Each white piece is only allowed one move, on the third move it must be checkmate.’
(yes that is me...solutions at the bottom.)
A Shirov - A. Morozevich, Astana, 2001:
Shirov has just played 55. Kc3-b2 (55. Kc2!). Morozevich failed to see that
he could walk into the skewer and draw. 55...Rxh5 56.Ra5+ Kb3 57 Rxh5.
That is stalemate. White went onto win. Now we see an alert RHP player at work,

Here is another RHP game with the same idea but, ‘Oh Dear...’(read on and do not laugh.)
