I showed this pattern to my kids in chess club last week – only to have it appear before me in a blitz game over the weekend. It’s a pretty simple mate but a satisfying find OTB in blitz. White to move.
1.Ne7+ Kh8 2.Qxh7+ Kxh7 3.Rh3#
It’s been a long time since I’ve looked at any tactics, but yeah, there’s got to be some magic given the placement of White’s knight, queen and rook and the lack of Black kingside defenders.
And hah! Just noticed that the answer is provided on this post page, but not in the post summary.
