Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 132

January 23, 2015

Black to play and win

 

 

R Van Tonder v W Kobese 2002

Solution

Fairly straightforward today: the Rd2 is tied to defending the queen, but is itself pinned to the king. So 'examine all biffs' includes looking at 1…Nd3+! which after 2 cd has the effect of making the Qd4 a LPDO, which by its name, drops off. So 2 Qd3[] Bd3 3 cd and white can drag the game on, but it is hopeless. A rook lift is bound to increase the pressure, and white won't be able to resist for long.
