Position No 13

And another puzzle from Jim Bingham - in the position below, black played 23.....Rd3 and white followed up with 24. Rc1 with the threat of Rc8 after the queen moves. So is black lost?

Position No 12

And another puzzle from Jim Bingham - The task is to take back white’s last move and then, instead, play the move which mates black.

After this, you create Position 2 by moving all the pieces up the board one square and repeat the same task.

And then repeat the whole activity twice more to create Positions 3 & 4, and find the solutions in these cases.
