ChessVibes Summer Contest 2008

Every day, from July 12 to 27, a set of three questions will be published. Every day, you try to 1) recognize a famous chess player from a photo, 2) recognize a famous chess game from a certain position, 3) solve a middlegame or endgame puzzle.

Your daily task is a very simple one: send us the best answers you can think of, by email, to contest2008@chessvibes.com. It's possible to discuss the question below the article, but to be able to take part of the contest you have to email your answers. Spoiling the answers might lead to removal from the contest.

After I get back, I will decide on the three winners. If some of you decide to use a chess program to find the answers, that's your choice (I wouldn't enjoy it very much like that, I think). In the end I will look at the best and quickest answers I receive.

What are the prizes?
