Test your chess: Reitstein problem 144

May 16, 2014

White to play and win




HE Price v P Aalbersberg 1976




Reitstein says that in desperate time trouble, white played 1 Rc8, allowing black to draw. He doesn't say how, but it is not hard to see that it is by 1…Qb1+ and 2…Qg6. It is equally easy, in fact trivial, without the pressure of time trouble to see that 1 Qg6+ mates after 1..Kg8[] 2 Rc8+ etc.

    Very impressive that white managed to draw the game after he blundered. Looks winning for black after white’s horrible Rc8 move.
