A touching photo of Natalia Pogonina, 17, 2003, with some of her trophies.
Just imagine how many awards she has now!

They say that chess is all about tactics - there are very few people who like chess, but aren't fond of solving tactical problems. We have been offering you positions from the "Play like Pogonina" series with Natalia's comments - hope you liked them. Now just imagine how positvely shocked I was when I saw this message on the web:

I posted 29 chess puzzles by Russian GM/Beauty Queen, Natalia Pogonina:
What's the best move? by WTHarvey

What can I say? Thanks to Mr. Harvey for preparing such an excellent selection of tactics from Natalia's games. I'm sure you're going to have a great time solving them!

P.S. The website includes chess tactics of some of the other top GMs - make sure you don't miss the most interesting problems!
