Synopsis: Problems of
the type for which the author is infamous are limited in number, for they
demand a combination of qualities not often found together. They should be
problems rather than puzzles, instructive rather than baffling, presenting
situations that arise in everyday play. They should be short and snappy, and
answerable by a concise statement, preferably early in the game; for if
delayed too long, variations in defense may lead to complications that
destroy the problem. Above all, they should offer two schemes of play, one
that may be plausible at first sight, and another that a deeper analysis
proves to be the correct procedure. And if there is a big swing between the
results of good technique and bad technique, so much the better, for there
is nothing like punishment to emphasize a lesson for man and beast.
