    if you have yourself or even chess computer engine these problems will set the test
    Give your computer 1 point for each correct answer
    after 2 to 10 mins ( upto you ) (in infinite mode). To calculate USCF rating, multiply point total by 30 and add 1650.

    or even yourself !! post answers later date please let me know your results many thanks ian aka rookorbycrook

    Thanks! I'll PM you with my email.

    I assume that no tablebases were used. Is that correct? I know some of the positions are in the tablebases, and that certainly would alter the results.
