Test your chess: Reitstein problem 4

December 28, 2013

White to play and win

 

 

 

J Wolpert v FL Petzall, S A Championship, Johannesburg 1959

 

Solution

 

Fairly trivial, 1 Rh5+! is a natural first try, and all that remains to be seen is if the Q and B win, but once you see that (after 1…gh 2 Bf5+) 2…Kg8[] 3 Be6+ forks the king and queen, it is game over.
