Three-way chess

Only three people turned up to play chess at the Ipswich Club recently.   But that didn’t put them off:

(l. to r.) – Silas Peck, Les Jones, Ken Lunn

Silas was the only person to submit a correct answer to the puzzle from a few days ago, as follows:

1. Ne3+   Ke2  2. Bxh2   Kxe3  3. Kh8   Bd5   4. g8Q   Bxg8   5. Bg1!   Now …fxg1Q or R is stalemate.   If …Bd5, then Bxf2+.
