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?
I got it on the third try
ez .. but thanx4puzzle
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.
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.
white CLEARLY dominates w/a few choices leading2a guaranteed checkmate!
a cool little puzzle...
It was a variation (so only Harry got it wrong).
Yep, looks like that works too (and is even a move faster).
