Chess Puzzle of the Week (64): Solution


Last week I asked you how Fabiano Caruana won this position with White.

The game concluded with the beautiful 1. Re7! (deflecting the queen from the back rank) 1… Qxe7 2. Ba6! (decoying the king to a6) 2… Kxa6 3. Qa8#

Congratulations to Jim Stevenson (Hammersmith)  who was the first to come up with the correct solution.
