    In today's puzzle (November 30th), wouldn't it be a simpler solution Bxg6 and then directly Rxh8?

    That would be responded to by NxB not Kh6 so the check mate opportunity would be lost

    Nice to see that they played it out at the end.  So often, in masters play, black would have resigned when the end was so obvious. 

    By the way, I think 5. hxg6+ would have worked just as well.

    Knowing most of these puzzle's start off by sacing a piece,today was no different, The white B and pawn made mate possible 1.Rxh8+...Kxh8, 2.Rc8+...Re8, 3.Rxe8+...Rf8, 4.Rxf8+...Kh7, 5.Bxg6+...Kh6, 6.Rh8#.You could have checked with g6+ at move 5 and still mated with Rh8,black K was stuck on h file.Do you think white saw mate from move 1? I did not see mate line untill move 3.Nice puzzle,Thank's Chess.Com good day chess head's.I all most checked with Bxg6+ to start but Nxg6 left me no where, so I saced R for first move and the rest fell into place,If K move's to h7 on move 2,puzzle end's same way by checking with Bxg6+...Kh6, Rh8#, or hxg6+...Kh6, Rh8#.The two R block's just delayed mate,so I guess you could call all move's forced.It feel's good to solve puzzle with out any help,but knowing how these puzzle's work was a hint,by saclng R to start!!

    I took with the pawn instead of the bishop and got the "wrong move" but I can't see where the difference lies...

    I take it you mean g6 but ...Nxg6 will prevent any way of mating, or at the very least delay it much longer then the correct solution.

    In fact that does work...

    5. hxg6+ Kh6 6. Rh8#

    Like Sreimund, I first thought 1.hxg6 was meant but after 1...Nxg6, White has nothing - it's crucial that the pawn is left on h5 for this attack to work & a player like Fischer knew that   Wink
