    Here is a stupendous anthology of 500 extraordinary chess problems. They are about castlings, en-passant captures, pawn promotions, tasks, unconventional first moves, retro puzzles, text problems, retractors, proof games, records, chess jokes, strange chess stories. Such problems are entertaining, exciting, witty, funny and often computer-defying.

    There is even a suggestion for a better procedure in the Chess World Championship Match.

    Werner Keym is a German expert in chess problems showing castling, en-passant capture and pawn promotion. For years problem-lovers have enjoyed his unusual puzzles, his funny chess jokes and his stories in the tradition of Sam Loyd.
