Four weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of meeting up with many friends to share a fun Friday evening of chess together. Within the coming week, I intend to publish a fuller article in which I will feature some favourite puzzles from the chess evening I had at the start of this month. Tonight, though, I am working on Maths at home for a friend whom I will be helping tomorrow, but now shortly before midnight signals the end of a very busy month of May, I just wanted to pause to quickly yet warmly say, “Hello, friends! I’ll be back soon!”
Here’s wishing everyone a lovely weekend now, and chess enthusiasts may enjoy a quick snack puzzle in which it is Black to play and force checkmate in 5 moves.
