Easy puzzle 6
White to play
Mate in 3
When solving chess puzzles – I would consider some key tactics first – Discovered check, double check, fork ,skewer,pin and more.
To restrict a piece movement can be a very useful skill too in combination with checking the king.
So What comes to my mind is to check if the opponent king is not secured i.e protected enough. I tend to evaluate my check possibilities.
In the case of the puzzle above.
Black king is standing on e4, how can he be mated in three strong moves by white. Make valuable moves that black can’t escape.
