    On 1. Bxd4 exd4 2. Rf6 Kg8 3. e5 h6 don't play 4. exd6 because 4...Qe3+ 5. Kh1 Qg5 6. Qxg5 hxg5.  There is now no mate threat and white's rook on f6 and knight on c3 are hanging, saving black.

    "The zwischenzug Benko missed!" ....... Bobby Fischer, from My 60 Memorable Games.  Any excuse to use a cool word like zwischenzug!


    :-) Like Zugzwang :-) Zwischenzug sounds better than Inbetweenmove :-)


     You're so right! I wonder, can this word be used as a verb? For example: "I was on my way to work, but I zwischenzugged to the bar for a beer." Or maybe "I would have retired, but for the zwischenzug recession." How about "Hillary would have been President but she missed the zwischenzug Obama."


    :-) There is no way to use "Zwischenzug" as a verb. Maybe you can use something like "dazwischengezogen" or "zwischenziehen". :-)

    Couldn't get 2nd move but I see the need for it now. But why did black play 2....Kg8 ? - there's no escape there.  Surely, much better is 2....h6  then 3.e5  Qe6  at least this spoils the easy mate via  4.Rxh6  leading to Qh7#   If white accepts the queen sac. with Rxe6 then fxe6 provides a possible escape route for black via g8 & f7.

    Summing up;

    2.Rf6   h6

    3.e5    Qe6

    4.Rxe6  fxe6

    5.Qf6   Kg8

    This may only postpone mate but that's a worthwile objective.


     You mean 5. Qg6 not Qf6.

    why go Rf6? can't you skip it and move pawn E5 and then Qh7 for checkmate. I don't understand K to G8, seems like a wasted move.


     Look for my post with chess board diagram at 8th section, it explains it.

    Black can do that but would be a piece down and lose the game.
