Hi,

I've been receiving a lot messages from people who like to solve chess puzzles, especially interactive ones. Previously we used to post static diagrams from time to time, but they probably were old-fashioned and not user-friendly enough.

Also, there have been many requests to provide more information about my own games.

As a result, I am glad to share with you the new Pogonina.com widget. On the board, using your mouse, you can solve the "puzzle of the day" or a random puzzle. Please note that you are not obliged to stop solving the puzzle after the widget displays the "Puzzle solved" sign. If you are interested in the final position or not sure what the evaluations is, you can always play the game out against an inbuilt chess engine. Similarly, if you make a "wrong" move, the widget will tell you that, but you can always insist on your choice if you like and see how the match would unfold. These features make the widget highly interactive and fun: you are encouraged to act in a creative way and improve your chess by practising to take important decisions in exciting tactical positions! Finally, don't forget about using the "hint" button if you get stuck.

As of now all the puzzles are based on positions from my own games. Please let me know in the comments to this post what you think about the widget and whether you would like to see examples from the games of other chess players.

Every day a new problem will be added to the collection. Have a great time solving the puzzles!




P.S. If you have your own site, please feel free to embed the widget, thus making it easier for yourself and your audience to access the puzzles. Don't hesitate to contact us if you experience any technical problems or need special tuning.

Large version (345x450 - you can change the numbers to 215 and 310 accordingly and remove ?w=45 from the code posted below if you prefer the small version):

Nice widget
@Norbert The widget normally says whose move it is. In the other cases one can hover the mouse over the text of the task and see what side Natalia is playing for. So far there is no "beat Natalia" tactics in the collection, so all the continuations are to be sought on her side ;)

I've been trying to solve this problem for almost an hour.  
Though I managed to reach the problem solved label all I managed to is to get a draw with the whites.  
Where can I get the list of moves of this game ?
