The Rook and Knight Epaulette Mate

When I was having my massive clear out (see the previous blog)
I found a few decades worth of CHESS magazine so we kick off
this weeks blog with four covers. You have the guess the year
the Chess event on the cover took place. (the last one is hard.)

They...the people who know these things...reckon a White Knight on f5 against
a Black Kingside castled position is worth a pawn. I gave up a pawn to get my
Knight onto f5, won it back with interest and blundered by trying to be too clever.

In between waiting for my opponents to move on RHP I have recently been going here.

('Play Computer' You will find it on the bottom right of the main screen.)

It’s an onboard computer you can play. I’ve been playing it at level one and trying
to match it it’s speed and often losing. I manage to sneak in a win when I slow down
because on the bottom level it’s horizon seems to be 4ply (2 moves each) so I can set
it three move tricks and it walks into them. Usually when I’ve got a winning position
I do a new game but in this one I could not resist the mating pattern that was in there.

So next we search was on for a Rook and Knight Epaulette Mate in RHP.


Typically the first one I found is unsound.
