For beginners

If you have no idea what this is all about, but are still interested in learning more about chess problems, you might enjoy browsing through the following materials, which are actually intended for beginners:

  • French-speaking persons will prefer "echekk", a didactical introduction in la langue de Molière (the site also proposes interesting articles for more advanced readers)
  • An Introduction to the chess problem in French is also available. "Introduction aux problèmes d'échecs" is a selection of texts by Camil Seneca, Xavier Tartakover, René Mayer and Jean Bertin, compiled by Patrick Martinez.
