Learn to spot that mate in 2

So you just played a good game of chess…and lost. That can happen to the best of us of course. But what about when your opponent tells you, that you just missed a checkmate in two moves. You sink back in the chair and blame yourself, that you did not see that mate pattern youself! So how to avoid overlooking this in the future, I hear you ask. You must put some time and energy into practicing checkmate patterns on a daily basis, at least 15-20 minutes per day.

There are lots of good books packed with puzzles that will definitely help you spot a mate in 2, 3 and 4 moves. They may be fun and helpful, but you need to turn to the pages back and forth between the puzzles and solutions, to check if you got the answers right. This tends to get a little tiresome. Why not practice in front of the computer instead, and get instant feedback on your moves? Below is a screen grab from “Set Mate in 2, 3 or 4 moves” on ChessEndgames.com. You can play three different difficulties, and get help from the Hint button.

Try out the “Set Mate in 2, 3 or 4 moves” to see for yourself.

certainly like your web site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I'll certainly come again again.
