Sacrificing Two Queens

This week’s puzzle is not very hard, but it is unusual because to win White has to sacrifice two Queens.

This doesn’t happen very often, and it is even rarer to sacrifice two Queens on the same move. This is the only position I know where it happened.

How does White to play win?

The solution to last Monday’s problem is that White wins by sacrificing his extra material. 1 Kc4! Kd7 2 Kd5 Kxd8 3 Kc6 and wins.

About Steven Carr

I am 57 years old, and I am trying to improve my standard of play. From 1998 to 2012, I had a break from chess, playing very few games in that period. I now play more competitive chess and I currently have a English grading of 184. I hope to get a grading of over 200 one day. I normally play in the Merseyside League and play Board 1 for Wallasey.
