Test your chess: Reitstein problem 207

July 18, 2014

White to play and win

 

 

L Ball v J Wilkinson 1977

 

Solution

 

Fairly straightforward: 1 Re7+ is a natural biff to try, and after 1..Ke7[] 2 Qg7+ and the LPDO Rh8 drops off, and the attack continues. Black has only a choice between losing his queen to a Ne6+ fork! or being mated.
