Beautiful combination

Dec 31, 2010, 8:49 PM 0

I'm reading the Art of Checkmate by Renaud and Kahn.  I really liked this combination found in the book.  Notice that black has so many moves and yet none will save him.

Here's another beautiful position.  White has a smothered mate, but his pieces are pinned by the rook.  What to do?  Just insist on dancing twice.  First time you take the rook, second time you checkmate the king!
