White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

A two-mover from the 1930s by M. Gruenfeld of Latvia. Just figure out why all the White pieces are where they are and you’ll figure it out.


Solution:

The first move is almost never a check. I hope you remembered that hint from past columns. 1.Bd4 Bxd4 [1...Kf5 2.Rg5#; 1...exd4 2.Rxe6#; 1...Rxd4 2.Rxg8#; 1...f3 2.Rg4#; 1...Bxh7 2.Kc3#] 2.Kxd2#
