This week’s puzzle is checkmate in three moves. White moves first. Any answer by Black, and White’s third move is checkmate.
The solution to this week’s puzzle: The first move is Qc4. The White queen moves from e2 to c4, the Black knight to Kc4, then White pawn to e4. Black rook moves to a4; the next move by White is checkmate.
