Answer To Chess Strategy Puzzle #56

The answer is for white to first play d4. If black plays K-h5, white responds with Q-d3. Black is then forced to play either K-h4 or K-g4. Regardless, white plays Q-h3 and it’s checkmate.

The other alternative after white’s opening move of d4 is for black to play K-g4, instead of the original K-h5, as in the first example. If that’s the case, white simply plays e4, check.  Black is now forced to play K-h4 and white checkmates with g3.

Answer To Advanced Chess Puzzle #52

This mate in 3 begins with white playing N-f5 discovered check. Black is virtually forced to play N-e7.  (If black plays K-e8, mate follows with Q-c8, if black plays K-g8, white sacrifices the queen with Q-f8 check and after Kxf8, white mates with R-c8.)  So, after black plays N-e7, white mates in two with Q-c8 check, black plays Nxc8 and then white checkmates with R-c8.
