White to move (Position after 12.Nxf6+ gxf6)
Okay, I have 2 ideas.
1) 2.Bxh7+ Kxh7 3.Qh5+ Kg7 4.Qh6+ Kf7 (...Kh8, I'm not sure of the follow-up) 5.Qxf6+ Ke8 6.Qxf8+...with checkmate or Black resigning sure to follow.
2) 2.Qh5 (threatening mate on h7). Black is unable to play 2...f5, blocking the d3-bishop, due to 3.Bxd8, but after 3...Rf7 or 3...Qd7, I can't see a continuation for White.
Thanks for the puzzle!
Wow, that was brilliant analaysis/explanation/puzzle.
Yes, 4.Rxf6+ is very logical.
Thank you, I look forward to the next one :)
1. Bxh7+Kxh72. Qh5+ Kg84. Qg6+Kh85. Bxf6+Rxf66. Rxf6Be47. Qh6+Kg8 you can analyse further as 8. Qg5+ and followed by 9. Rh6+ whatever black does
For what it's worth...
