Suddenly Vishy Anand started to scroll through his phone. It was quite surprising because Anand usually does not get distracted by his phone when he makes public appearances. Soon we realised that he was not looking at his messages or tweets, but in fact, trying to search a challenging position for the youngsters to solve!
Moreover, now we would like you to think about this position. It’s White to play and Mate in 3. What do you think is the answer?
Composing this study in the year 1904, we do not know who is the composer of the problem. What we know is that this mate in three was sent to Vishy Anand by none other than his predecessor Vladimir Kramnik! Also, you must remember, Kramnik’s problems are never easy!
