White to Move


Interesting position here, white is in total control but the game is not over, looking at the position a beginner might think of capturing the Knight with rook but given these are fork tactics, knight must be moved. Ng6+! pretty much sums it up. Nxg6 results in a checkmate with Rxh7#.

So here is the perfect move for the position and best move for black that follows.


1.Ng6+ Kg7


Note that black cannot capture the knight with another knight because of the checkmate at h7.
