Black to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

Things look grim for Black as his queen is about to be taken by White; however, he does have a way out of this mess.


Solution:

1...Ne2+ 2.Kh1 Rxh2+ 3.Kxh2 Rh8+ 4.Bh6 [4.Qh6 Rxh6+ 5.Bxh6 Qxh6#; 4.Qh5 Rxh5+ 5.Bh4 Rxh4#] 4...Qh4# The knight check and the rook sac (sometimes even a queen sac on h2 (or h7 if turned around) is an important pattern to remember.
