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!

Answer To Online Chess Endgame Puzzle #34

The answer is for black to play Q-e2, check.  If white plays anything except K-b1 or K-b3, he loses his queen. If K-b1, then Q-d1 is checkmate. If K-b3, then Q-d3 is checkmate.

Chess Puzzle #25. The answer is Qxe6 check. Black doesn’t have a lot of options and is pretty much forced to play fxe6. White then checkmates black with B-g6.

Congratulations if you got them all!
