Something to Chew On

Paul Motwani sent me this little puzzle. It’s the kind I like; everyone can start to have a go at it, but how many can solve it?

Basically, set up the board in the starting position, and then find a sequence of moves where black delivers mate on move five with the move knight takes rook.

A chess general knowledge (well actually a chess history) question: Which world champion, commenting on the bad sportsmanship of his opponents and the excuses they made for losing games against him, said: “I never won a game against a well man!”

Answers in next gazette.
