CHESS PUZZLE - Care of Bob Wade's "PLAYING CHESS"

White to play... and checkmate in 8 moves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


A WONDERFUL PUZZLE!

...that I found in the book "PLAYING CHESS" by Bob Wade, published by The Macmillan Chess Library back in 1984. The actual position was with the King on b1 - to make it just even that much more complicated! If you have access to this wonderful book the puzzle is originally featured on page 101 under the 5th chapter of "HUMAN FACTORS".

Enjoy! - Chess Coach Sean Tobin.
