A note to our readers. I messed up the technological format this past week and several puzzles didn’t get in; however, they are now in the archive thanks to our tech guy, Sean. Just click on “Chess Puzzles” above and you can see them. Today’s puzzle is a dynamite finish leading to an Arabian Mate.


  Won by Wilkonski back in 1911: 1. Rxg7+ Rxg7 2. Nf6+ Kh8 3. Qd8+ Bxd8 4. Nxf7+ Rxf7 5. Rg8# The queen sac deflecting the bishop pin is the key for the knight to go to work.
