    This position didn't actually occur in the game, but it could've.  Golombek says in his notes that here "a mate by White is not to be seen."  So...what do you guys think? Laughing

    Well, I got it wrong in a fairly stupid way heh.

    So Reti (and the author) missed it huh.  Considering they're all forcing moves that's a pretty big miss for such a good player.

    Good one!

    At first I couldn´t see how to stop the K escaping via e7, but if instead of 2... Rxe6 2... Kf8, then 3.Nh7# is a beautiful mate.

    i agree with annaZC, bg6+ appears to be just as good.

    It was a variation (so only Harry got it wrong).

    Yep, looks like that works too (and is even a move faster).
