Solution to Magnus Problem




This position occurred in the final tie-break game of the 2016 World Chess Championship match between Magnus Carlsen (White) and Sergey Karjakin (Black). It is White's move and he looks in dire trouble with Black's queen and rook invading his second rank and threatening multiple checkmates.

However, Magnus won brilliantly with 50.Qh6+!!

Black resigned as if 50...Kxh6 then 51.Rh8 mate, or if 50...gxh6 then 51.Rxf7 mate.
