Chess trivia and chess puzzle: Who's the romantic couple?

Chess news and chess trivia blog (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2010

Hello Everyone,

You will love both this photograph that's our trivia question this week and the chess puzzle. They're not from the same date though.

First, the photograph. Can you guess who is this lovely young couple? (Sorry, no hints.) The photograph was tweeted by a fan.

And, here is a puzzle. Not from their game though.

White in any case is winning this. But how about White to play and mate in three.

It's a bit tricky but if you can coordinate all your pieces well, you'll manage it. Watch out for the Black King getting stalemated or escaping.
