Test your chess: Reitstein problem 56

February 18, 2014

White to play and win

 

 

 

W Heidenfeld v J. Wolpert 1959

 

 

Solution

 

After seeing that 1 Rc8+ doesn't work! since 1…Ng8 defends everything, the biff 1 Be4! comes to mind. The bishop can't be captured (1…Qe4 2 Qf6+ Kg8 3 Rc8+ and mates; 1…Ne4 2 Qf8 mate) so either 1…Qe5, when 2 Rc8+ Ng8 3 Qh7mate. Instead, black can grovel with 1…Ng8 when 2 Qh4 Rd4 3 Bf5 wins the exchange.
