Start your engines

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines

 

 

Start Your Engines is a fun game and competition to explore and solve very hard positions. Each week 4 of such positions are presented on this page and the goal is to find the right moves and to contribute the moves in the below entry form.

 

For each correct answer you get one point and at the end of the week solutions are given and the ranking is updated.

 

Pick yourself a nickname (or use your real name), a valid email address for verification purposes only in case of doubt and start enjoying the beauty of chess. To get the position click on the c8 square, the script will show you the PGN | EPD | FEN. Consulting databases is allowed, just find the right moves..
