Pete Tamburro on

We pick on a new square this week. Should be easy to guess which one, but you will have to calculate a few moves down the road.


From Weiss-Herzog, Correspondence, 1933: 1.Rxf7 Qxd1 [1...Kxf7 2.Rd7+ Kf6 3.Bd4+ Kg5 4.h4+ Kg4 5.Qd3! Qf5 6.Qd1+] 2.Qxe6 Qa1 3.Rc7+ Kh8 4.Qxc8# which demonstrates that when attacking, you need to see if you can take advantage of the castled rook moving away from protecting f7.
