Test your chess: Reitstein problem 208

July 19, 2014

White to play and win

 

S Lewis v R Rubin 1962

 

Solution

 

1 Qd7! Is a double attack on two LPDOs, so black must either take the queen, when 1…Qd7 2 ed Rb8 3 Re8+ and white wins trivially, by slowly advancing his pawns. So 1…Rc7 is forced, except that 2 Qc7! Qc7 3 e7! is another double attack, so the pawn promotes.
