This week, we’re going to share the attacking skills of a relatively unknown master, Victor Soultanbeieff. He was active from the 20s through the 40s. In 1935, he announced a mate in 6 in this position against Liubarski.


A wonderful example of an epaulette mate: 1.Rf7+ Ke8 [1...Kg8 2.Rfc7+ Kf8 3.Rxc8+ Bd8 4.Rxd8#] 2.Bb5+ Kd8 3.Rbd7+ Ke8 4.Rde7+ Kd8 5.Re8+ Rxe8 6.Rd7#
