chess puzzle 149 for kids
1. e6+ Bxe6 2. Qxa5
This is a typical position, and this chess puzzle will help you learn a typical chess combination to win material which may be called "pawn sacrifice and check with discovered attack on a valuable piece." Let's see... Pay your attention that the Black queen on a5, the White pawn on e5, and the White queen on h5 are located on the same line (rank) - and the pawn is between the two queens. To win the Black queen on a5, the White pawn moves on e6 (sacrifice) to give check and clear the line a5-h5 between the queens (discovered attack on the Black queen). Being checked, Black should play Bxe6, and the White queen takes the Black one on the second move.

1. f8=Q+ Ke6 2. Qxa3
This puzzle will show you how to win the queen using "skewer on promotion." To win the Black queen on a3, White moves the pawn on f8 promoting the pawn, giving check, and delivering skewer. After promotion, the Black king should move on e6, and the newly-born White queen takes the Black queen on a3. Notes for you: The pawn is usually promoted to the queen because the latter is the strongest piece on the board (1 queen = 10 pawns, 1 rook = 5 pawns, 1 bishop = 3 pawns, 1 knight = 3 pawns; but king is undefined as the most valuable because it cannot be captured). The pawn may be also underpromoted to any other piece of less value (to rook, bishop, knight - but not to the king). The skewer is an attack upon two pieces in a line when the more valuable piece is first in the line (the king is considered to have more value than the queen; queen is more valuable than rook; rook is more valuable than bishop or knight). Skewer is similar to pin (skewer is sometimes called a reversed pin). The pin is also an attack upon two pieces in a line but the less valuable piece is first in the line.
