Solution to Medium chess puzzle 0009
At this puzzle, next move is by White. The objective of the puzzle is whether will you fall into the trap set by the opponent. Your opponent has just captured your knight. You may be tempted to capture the knight as it is not supported. Actually it is a magnetsacrifice by your opponent so that you will move your king to a tactically weaker square. If you capture the knight, your opponent will checkmate in next move by moving their queen to d1. This checkmate is also called back-rank mate as your king is blocked by your own pieces.
You have four options to avoid this trap
- Block the queen’s access to d1. This can be done by moving your pawn in f file to f3.
- Defend the square d1. This can be done in two ways.
- Have a square free for your king to move. If you move the pawn from g2 to g3, your king can move to g3 if queen gives a check.
