Here is another **chess endgame puzzle** that came from a game played by one of my students. We are again looking for the winning move. It’s white to play. See if you can find the correct move. The answer will appear in my next post.

I believe I’ve got it. 1) RcxBd+…KxR 2) QgxNf#

Sacrifice, sacrifice, eventually Black wins the Queen and mates. If I’m looking at this right.

My first attempt is wrong but could continue 2) QgxNf+…Qb5-e8… hmmm, I seem to be circling the drain here.

Hang in there, Frank. The answer is coming soon!
