Today's first puzzle came from the game between the top hungarian player Peter Leko and Russian superstart Alexander Morozevich, which they played in Moscow in the World Blitz Championship in 2007:
White to move and checkmates in 1
The second game was also played in Moscow in a blitz tournament. It was the Tal memorial in 2008. Ruslan Ponomariov beat Evgeny Alekseev:
White to move and checkmates in 3
We analyzed one of his games with my student Ron Livaudais where he had a beautiful attack with sacrifices:
Black to move and checkmates in 4
I wish you a lot of fun for the puzzles! If you gave a nice checkmate and would like me to publish it, then please send it to me in a message!
