An unusual solution to a common tactic

  • #1

    It all started off with a normal, slightly mad sacrifice:








    Black decided to create attacking chances, so he played 8 . . . Bxh3?

    And White found a solution that ended everything:

  • #2

    I take it you set the puzzle up wrong? I also don't see how you got the second position from the first.

  • #3

    He obviously played 0-Ng5-0.

  • #4

    Black to play and get mated after blundering certainly is an unussual solution to a common tactic.

  • #5

    Nevermind, he must have played N...h6-0-g5-0.

  • #6

    Oops. Yes, White was castled.

    My mistake!
