Answer To Advanced Chess Puzzle #42

This mate in 3 begins with white playing R-f8 check. Black is forced to play KxR. White then plays N-g6 forcing black to play hxg6. Checkmate follows with Q-h8.

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.

Answers to Online Chess Puzzles 20-22

Here are the answers to the online chess puzzles numbers 20-22. I hope you found the solutions to all of them!

Chess Puzzle #20. The answer is Q-e5 checkmate. Obviously Q-h5 is not mate as the king escapes on g7.

Chess Puzzle #21. This first checkmate is Q-g6 check, followed by the black king moving to h8 and the Qxg7 is checkmate. The second checkmate is a little trickier. It’s Rxg7, black then plays Kxg7 and Qxh6 is checkmate.

Chess Puzzle #22. The answer is R-f8 check. Black is forced to play Bxf8. White then plays Q-f7 check. Black plays K-d8. White then checkmates black with Q-d7.

Congratulations if you got them all!
