In this section, 27 test positions are presented from the course “Test your strength and improve your game with the 14th Women’s World Chess Champion”, which we did with Anna Ushenina straight after she won her World title in 2012 (use the drop-down menu above the chess board to select a game; on your mobile or tablet, swipe down or up to make the next or previous game appear).

In the next section 24 test positions are presented from my classical tournament praxis on my way to gaining the International Master title. There are also six training positions, the solutions to which surprised me and which accordingly taught me something new. See if you can solve them… These memories of fighting over the board mean much more to me than a hundred wins against the titled players in a blitz (mostly online).
