Black to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

This position demonstrates an ideal attacking position out of the Dutch Defense. White is ready to defend with Bf3, so Black must anticipate that.

1...Qxh4 2.Bxg4 2.gxh4 Bxh2# 2...Qxh2+ 3.Kxh2 hxg4+ 4.Kg1 Rh1# One of the classic attacking patterns chess—worth remembering.
