Happy Holidays from Chess Institute of Canada

We hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday season, filled with chess!

For your enjoyment, here’s a fun and tricky holiday-themed chess puzzle. (Looks a bit like a Christmas tree, right?)

White to play and mate in two. If White plays the correct first move, then Black is in zugzwang, meaning that any move Black makes loses.

Have fun!
