Answer To Advanced Chess Tactics Puzzle #39

There are a couple of ways for white to win. First is, Rxf7. Virtually any move by black including KxR, is met with Q-g6 by white. Then mate in one follows. If after Rxf7, black plays RxQ, then white plays Rxg7 check and mate follows with N-g6.

Another way is for white to start with Q-g6, threatenting mate in 1. If black takes the white queen by playing (fxg6) then white plays Rxg7 check and mate again follows with N-g6.

I hope you found one of the answers. Look for another new chess puzzle in my next post!
