Test your chess: Reitstein problem 235

August 15, 2014

Black to play and win

Black played 1..Bh2!, met by 2 c4; what next?


PTR Hodges v BE Siegheim 1906




Following Purdy, ignore the threat, and think what you would do if the threat could not possibly be executed. So, examine all biffs, 1…Qb2, 1….Nf2 and 1…Qf3!, and see that the latter one leads after 2 gf to 2…Bh3 mate.
