    I am just solving Pandolfini Checkmate puzzles 10 every day. Didn't know two mates in 2 out of 60 so far. I guess temporary blindness. I felt that was something involving capturing the rook and giving discovered check. It is always funnier to sumbit problem here then just checking the solutions..

    Every queen move is winning, but I guess what you are looking for is Qxg6+ fxg6 Bxf8#

    Yep... Anybody else has this book?
    It has mates in 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and even 7 moves. It is incredible how fast it sharpens visualisation and tactical skills
