Test your chess: Reitstein problem 6

December 30, 2013

White to play and draw

 

 

 

 

R Hillman v DA Walker, SA Championship, East London 1975

 

Solution

 

Yet another trivial one (the book is worth sticking with: I am a few ahead now, and they do get harder). A fairly obvious try is 1 d4+! Kd4[] 2 Nb5+! Nb5[] 3 Ka4 when all that needs to be seen is that black can't protect both the Pa5 or Nb5, so one must fall, and it is a draw.
