To say last week’s puzzle was popular would be something of an understatement – no fewer than 14 responses (albeit most of them from Charlie!!).
In the end, it was Charlie who got there first (on his 11th attempt), but credit to Adam too. Well done to you both and we’re loving the enthusiasm!
The full solution as follows:
1. Qc3+ (Qb2 is also ok), Kg8 (not forced but anything else loses lots of material)
2. Qxh8+, Kxh8
3. Bf6+, Kg8
4. Re8+, mate!
So to this week’s puzzle, and it’s a bit more of a thinker.
All our recent puzzles have been about piece play, so this one celebrates the little guys – the pawns are the hero here:
