This is a selection of 16 chess puzzles that I find to be among the most incredible and ingenious that I’ve seen.

I have modified the presentation of several of these problems. Most notably, the checkmate problems are usually presented as a “Mate in n”, where n is given to the solver. In these cases, I leave it up to the solver to try to force a mate as quickly as possible. If you want the values of n for these problems, they are listed under the section “The Numbers”, after “The Puzzles” and before “The Solutions”.
