Wednesday Workout: Checkmates with Reinfeld, Part 2

To honor the publication of CLO columnist Alex Dunne’s newest book, Fred Reinfeld: The Man Who Taught America Chess, with 282 Games, this week’s Wednesday Workout consists of ten tricky mate puzzles drawn from Reinfeld’s games. Last week we looked at mate-in-one and mate-in-twos, but this week we’re going to really test you with checkmates ranging from three-movers to eight-movers!
