    My solution to this quiz is 1.RXd5.
    (a) 1. …QXd5 2.Be4 Bf6 ( 2. …QXe4 3.Qh8# ) 3.BXd5 Ke7 ( 3. …NXd5 or BXe5 4.QXf7# ) and White will certainly win.
    (b) 1. …NXd5 2.QXf7#
    (c) 1. …g6 2.BXg6 Bf6 ( 2. …QXd5 or fXg6 3.Qh8# ) 3.RXd8 ReXd8 4.BXf7 and White will surely win.

    1. Rxd5 Qxd5 (1. … Nxd5 2. Qf7#) 2. Be4 threatens both 3. Bxd5 and 3. Qh8#.

    beautifull tactic :
    1. R×d5 Q×d5 (K×d5 2.Q×f7 mate)
    2. Be4 gain the Queen !

    Not bad, but 2.Qxf7 and 3.Nd7 mate was played!

  5. yelenadembo says:

    Definitely winning, but but 2.Qxf7 and 3.Nd7 mate was played!

  6. yelenadembo says:

    Good idea but 2.Qxf7 and 3.Nd7 is mate! 🙂

    I forget who is quoted as having said “When you see a good move, wait, don’t play it! Look around to see if there’s an even better one.” I wish I’d have remembered that with this position! Mate’s better than winning a queen. 🙂

  8. yelenadembo says:

    Yes! 🙂 Always look if there is something better 🙂
