White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

Masters giving simultaneous exhibitions like to end games quickly. Back in 1932, Dr. Ossip Bernstein did just that in this game after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 d6 4. O-O Nge7 5. Ng5 f6 6. Bf7+ Kd7 7. Qg4+ f5 8.exf5 h5 (See Diagram)

9.f6+ hxg4 10. Be6+ Ke8 11. f7# Always fun to mate with a pawn!
