Daily news and information (mainly) about Chess in Suffolk
After all the excitement in the Isle of Man over the past few days, here's a straightforward puzzle. K+Q v K+Q is usually a draw, but not in this case. So how does White (to play) win?
Looks like 1. Qc5+ is a good start...
OK, now finish it off Ian before I publish the answer soon!
Just noticed this was yesterdays posting, so as you've all had a good chance to answer, the rest of the solution...1. ... Kb2, (any other allows mate in one) 2. Qb4+, Ka2 (2. ... Kc1 3. Qd2+ Kb1, 4. Qc2#) 3. Kc2! mates.
