• Learn from each chess puzzle. Analyze and learn the solutions for White and Black. Pay special attention to the moves marked as strong (!) and brilliant (!!) moves. Pay your attention to the moves marked as weak (?) and blunders (??). Think why some "obvious" moves are not shown in the solution...
• Below is a screenshot of Endgame 48 of the demo version. This endgame study (puzzle) was created by Alexei Troitzky in 1896, White to move and win. The solution: 1. Na3+!! Nxa3 2. d6! exd6 3. h5 1-0. To win, White must promote the passed h4-pawn. Having solved the puzzle and carefully learned the solution, you should remember the following 2 winning ideas for your future games. Idea 1 (1. Na3+!! Nxa3): The knight sacrifice with fork and check to put the Black knight on a3 — now the Black knight is one jump away form the passed pawn (a3-b5-d6-f7). Idea 2 (2. d6! exd6): The pawn sacrifice to block d6 with a Black piece to prevent the Black knight from stepping on d6 on its run for the passed pawn (a3-b5-d6 is blocked by the Black pawn). Now you can promote the pawn.
