Chess Puzzle (8) - Solution

White to move

The best answer for chess puzzle (8) is :-

Killing black's queen body guard - the knight at e5 with 38.Bxe5! Qxf5 force , if not black will lost her queen at g6 easily 39.Nh6+! this is the key move. Black king is force to move to f- file with 39.. Kf8 and after 40.Rxf5+ white bishop on e5 is safe. The worse thing is black will not only lost a piece but in fact two piece after 40...Bf6 or 40...Nf6 ( surely not 40...Ke7 41.Rf7# checkmate ) both lost to 41.Bxf6 black is two piece down ;

38.Nh6+ is not clear cut as 38. Bxe5 for e.g after 38.Nh6+ Kg7 and the position is quite messy
