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 queen to Qc7. The White queen moves from e5 to c7, then Black rook to c7, followed by White rook to d8 and Black rook to c8. The next move by White is checkmate.
