John Emms' Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book Set 2
Compiled by The Last Straw
--*--

Note: Many of the games are not in the database. Compiled are the ones that are.

Answer in Kibitzing means what was played in the game was inaccurate and ANYONE has kibitzed on the answer.

Tests are a system John Emms used to determine the reader's elo. However, this will be inaccurate as some games are not in the database. I have still retained the ones that are.

The <level> of a test puzzle shows how hard it is. (Easiest are Level 1, Hardest are Level 5)
