This one is a knightmare! The final mating position is hilarious.


This was composed by Anderssen 1.Qe8+ Kg4 2.Qe4+ Kh5 3.Nf4+ Kg4 4.Nd5+ Rxe4 [4...Kh5 5.Nf6#] 5.Nf6+ Kf4 6.Ng6# Considering the overwhelming force on black’s side, I couldn’t resist thinking of the old nursery rhyme: “All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again.”
