Chess Puzzle of the Week (5)

Last week‘s answer: Black could have won the game by playing 1… Qg1+ 2. Bf1 (or 2. Qf1 Rd1+) and now the rather wonderful 2… Qh1! when the white queen is overloaded.

In the game Pokojowczyk – Przewoznik (Polish Championship 1979) Black missed his chance, instead playing f5, when the game was eventually drawn. This was taken from a recent ChessBase article by Jon Speelman.

This week, something else I spotted on Twitter recently. It’s White to play and mate in 3. Can you solve it?
