John Emms' Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book Set 4
Compiled by The Last Straw
--*--

Note:Some of the games are not in the database. I have compiled the ones that are.

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

Tests are a system John Emms used to calculate 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 depends on its difficulty. Easiest are Level 1, hardest are Level 5.
