White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

This game, won by Kolisch, is a wonderful example of long-range power.

When you consider that White has only a bishop beyond the second rank, this is quite a lesson: 1.Bh6+ Kxh6 2.Qd2+ Kg7 3.Qg5+ Kf8 4.Qxf6+ Ke8 5.Bf7+ Kf8 6.Bh5+ Kg8 7.Qf7#
