You can find a Treasure Vault containing a chess puzzle on the Poidsear Coast, and you may even stumble upon a bunch of nasty spiders on your way since they have a nest nearby. You can take care of those creatures or try to get past them by using a Disillusionment spell.

Once you are there, your path will be blocked by stone bars, but you can move them by casting Depulso on two nearby mechanisms. You need to hit them several times in quick succession until the stone bars are entirely pulled back. After that, you can safely make your way into the Treasure Vault.

Inside the chamber, you will find a massive chessboard, where you will need to end the game by checkmating the Black King. You can use Revelio to reveal the location of an interactable object in the room.

Next, you need to cast a Transformation charm on the pot, and it may shift into a Rook, a Knight, or a Bishop. In my case, it changes into a Rook. Now, You must move the chess piece into the correct position using Wingardium Leviosa.

There is no single correct answer to this puzzle because as long as you can checkmate the Black King, you will win. Since I got a Rook, I put it right beside the King, and it immediately crumbles. A short cutscene will play where a chest suddenly drops from above, and you can claim your prize.
