Cordingley puzzle 128 #chess

August 6, 2013

White to play and win

 

 

Solution

 

 

A nice puzzle, but not too hard.

 

My instant impression was 1 Bg6+, which I think is the natural first try, and after 1…Kg6, 2 Nh4+, which a after a quick calculation turned out to be insufficient; but it wasn't too hard to 'step on the gas' and try instead 2 Ne5+, and it was 'kind of obvious' – which means really that it is a familiar motif to check on h5, check on h7, and then long castle.

Enjoyable, pretty, but not too hard. In a word, nice.
