Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

In Vitiugov-Ding, St. Petersburg, 2012, White showed that an excellent mating attack does not have to start with a check or a capture.


Solution:

1.Rf5 and Black Resigned because of 1...gxf5 [1...Qxf5 2.Bxf5 gxf5 3.Qg5]2.Qg5 Rg8 [2...Kh8 3.Qg7#] 3.Qxh5# The only other alternative was staying a queen down.
