Chess Puzzle of the Week (251): Solution

On Monday I asked you how Bob and Carol reached this position after Black’s 5th move.

I’m sure you worked out the solution to this Proof Game problem. Their opening moves (don’t try this at home) were:

  1. h4 Nf6
  2. h5 Nxh5
  3. f3 Nf6
  4. Rxh7 Ng8
  5. Rh1 f6

This was again taken from Zlotnik’s Treasure Trove by Boris Zlotnik (New in Chess 2023). Enjoyable Chess Training for Amateurs (1600-2000 Elo) according to the subtitle. I hope you found this to be enjoyable! My review of this book will be appearing shortly on British Chess News.
