We conclude our two-week exploration into great rook moves with a Stolberg-Botvinnik game, 1940, and a parting thanks again to the late D.J. Morgan for digging up these positions.


Solution:

My favorite line is 1…Rxh3+ 2.Kg1 Rxg2+ 3.Kxg2 Qe2+ 4.Kxh3 Qg4+ 5.Kh2 Nf3+ 6.Kh1 Qh3# Stolberg played 2.gxh3, but after 2…d4 resigned because of the coming Qd5.
