These problems obey explicity the rules of chess, and if you know the moves of the pieces, solving them will be well within your capabilities. That is not to say they are easy to solve - they vary. The pleasure of problem chess lies not in the difficulty of solution, but in an appreciation of how White wins. There are no dull draws here, only exciting mate finishes! The author, Barry Barnes, is an International Master and Judge of the F.I.D.E. for Chess Composition, its ex-1st Vice President and Honorary Life Member. He edited the two-move problems in the specialist magazine The Problemist for 26 years.
