      Solution to Puzzle 41
chess puzzle 41 for kids
1. Nd7#
This is another checkmate pattern, an interesting one... 2 White rooks may attack the Black king, but so far the White knight is "shadowing" the second rook on b1. The White knight should step aside for delivering mate. But where to step on?.. The only mating move is when the knight steps aside on d7. In this case, the Black king will be mated in 1 - by moving on d7, the knight delivers double check and mate. The double check cannot be met by interposing or by capturing the attacker because there are 2 attackers on the scene.

1. Qxg7#
This position is very important because it shows a very common checkmate pattern when the queen mates under the support of a friendly bishop... Have a look at the position. The Black king is at a corner with a defending pawn structure. But the g7-pawn is not protected, and the White queen with her bishop are aiming at this key square... The White queen moves on g7, capturing the pawn, and delivers mate in 1. The White queen is supported by her bishop on b2. This checkmate pattern is very common for engaging mate.
