Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

This is an old classic problem: Black is threatening a mate in one at g2 while defending the mate at h7, but White mates anyhow.


  A composition by H. German. 1.Rg6+ Qxg6 1...Nxg6 2.Qxh7#; 1...fxg6 2.Qxh7#; 1...Kh8 2.Qxh7# 2.Nf6+ Kh8 2...Nxf6 3.Qh8#; 2...Qxf6 3.Qxh7# 3.Qxh7+ Qxh7 4.Rxh7# An Arabian Mate!
