Test your chess: Reitstein problem 104

April 7, 2014

Black to play and win


H Pfeiffer v A de Olivieira Dias 1960







Having seen that 1…Rc8 2 Rd3 is nothing, and tried 1…Bc2?? 2 Ne7+ 1-0, something else has to be found. Because of the threat of Ne7+, a bishop move is obvious, and so 1…Ba3??, 1…Bf6 were considered before seeing 1…Bc5, hitting the queen, which I then saw had the key function of defending c2: so 2 Qd2 Be3! and the pin decides the game.
