The New in Chess-Huffington Post Chess Puzzle Contest

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Lubomir Kavalek, International Chess Grandmaster, has featured the following contest in his blog at The Huffington Post this week. Give it a go!

The contest is done in cooperation with New In Chess. It consists of three parts: a trivia question, a chess study and a chess problem. Try to solve all three puzzles and you may win one-year subscription to the excellent New In Chess magazine.

There is also a bonus puzzle that may improve your chances of being among the three winners. You will have until June 21 to e-mail your solution to:

They will publish the correct solutions and the winners after June 25.


He predicted the opponent and the outcome with these words: "It will by Short and it will be short." He also likes the movies Casablanca, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and The Godfather. Who is this grandmaster?
