Daily chess puzzle

August 6, 2019

A recent 3 minute blitz game on Chess.com, with a nice finish.

White to play and win

Allan Beardsworth v FM J Kinglion (pseudonym), Chess.com, 3-0 18th July 2019

Solution

1 Rh8+! Kh8[] 2 Qh2+ Kg8 3 Qh7+ Kf8[] 4 Qh8+ Ke7[] 5 Qg7+ and mates.

A nice epaulette mate ends a standard combination, which is nice whenever you get the chance to play it.
