    Glenno's ten next-move diagrams

    In each of the ten diagrams, study the diagram for no more than five minutes, then input your next move.
    Each position in this page comes from real play by strong players. Beware, not all of these positions are wins for the side on the move, nor the best move is necessarily a brilliant one. Try to avoid "cheating" by thinking in terms of finding a combination: there may be none available. Instead, concentrate on the position, evaluate it and type the move you would play on the chessboard in a real game.
    Some of these positions are pretty easy to play, but most of them are tough. Again, remember that these are real games between strong players: even the losing side (when there was one) might have been of IM/GM strength...

    Hey glenno. Just a word of advice.... it might be better if you give one at a time.... otherwise there may be confusion as to whom is referring to what position.
