White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

Today’s position is from my book, Openings for Amateurs-Next Steps. White is obviously winning, but what is the quickest way to mate Black?


The game is Dobias-Podgorny, Prague, 1952: 1.Bxg6 fxg6 1...fxe6 2.Bf7#; 1...Rxe6 2.Bxf7#; 1...Re7 2.Bh7+ Nxh7 (2...Kh8 3.Qxf6#) 3.Qxh7+ Kf8 4.Qh8# 2.Qxg6+ Kh8 2...Kf8 3.Qf7# 3.Nf7#
