This is position number 14 of the book I am studying. Discoveries is the theme.
I got it first time! Great puzzle, thx
I tend to agree with you. These are from a book written by a US National Master. He first produced a book of "Combinations" and then made this smaller book from it. Some are easier than others and I think the great variation in difficulty suggests he has lost touch with the weaker player's thought processes.
These positions are too difficult for a beginer. One can only imagine that later examples must be even more difficult. These exercises are more suitable for advanced players with rating around 1600.
