Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 106

White to play and win

 

C Meiboom v PE Van der Walt 1986

 

Solution

I first took a journey down the wrong path, trying to make 1 Bb5+? work, but it doesn't: 1…ab 2 Nb5 Ra2 3 Nc7+ and now not 3…Ke7, which I liked, seeing 4 Bc5+ Kf6[] 5 Ne8 mate, but 3…Kd7 kills the fun.

Then, I quickly tried 1 Nb5? which is just as bad, before finding the right move, 1 Nd5 and white wins material: if 1…ed 2 Bd5 and the Ra8 drops off.
