puzzle88

Last week’s puzzle was taken from Winning Chess Puzzles for Kids Volume 2 by Jeff Coakley, whose wonderful puzzle books are highly recommended for kids from 7 to 70.

I asked you how this position arose after Black’s 4th move.

Well done to all of you who found the answer: 1. c3 f6 2. Qb3 f5 3. Qxg8 Rxg8 4. c4 Rh8.
