White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

I’ve presented Henri Rinck before, and here he is again! His compositions have such geometric precision and beauty, it’s mind-boggling. While it seems the Black king, especially with the queen around should have lots of choices of squares; however, Rinck sees each square around the Black king having a distinct role. The White king and knight do their part. Now it’s up to her highness to do hers.


The forcing nature of this sequence is remarkable. Just stunning! 1.Qf7+ Qf5 2.Qc4+ Qe4 3.Qc7+ Kf5 3...Kg4 4.Qg7+ Kf5 5.Nd4+ Kf4 6.Qg3# 4.Qf7+ Kg4 5.Qg7+ Kf5 6.Nd4+ Kf4 7.Qg3#
