tactics tool
  • Tommah at 2017-08-31

    I want to share a chess training tool that I made recently: https://new.amecy.com/main/checkmate .  It offers a set of practice positions that contain forced checkmates.  You move the pieces, and the page tells you whether you have chosen the right moves.  About 40 positions are accessible so far.  There are more hidden positions in the database (about 900), but I am not ready to make them all accessible yet.

    By the way, you don’t have to sign up to use that page.

    Very nice, I already did the first 4 problems. It made me remember the time when I was 12 and studying chess.

    I should have mentioned that the problems on there are relatively simple.  I will add some more difficult problems soon.

    I have added more positions.  Some of the high-numbered problems (700-1001) are more challenging than the first 50.

    I’ve done a lot of work on the checkmate trainer over the past year, so I invite you again to take a look (https://new.amecy.com/main/checkmate).  The biggest improvement is that the site now maintains a record of which problems you have solved.  If you sign up on the site, your progress is saved for 30 days.  If you use the tool without signing up, your progress is saved until you close the page.

    I also added about 40 more problems to the page.  I have been testing out the rest of the problem set, and I will soon start adding new groups of problems on a regular basis (around 50 per month for the next 12 months).
