Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 146

White to play and win: black has just sacrificed 1…Be6-g4


 

L Wilkin v B Rabinowitz 1955

Solution

In the game, white played 1 Qc1, and the game went on. However, the sac is unsound and 1 hg Ng4[] 2 Bh7+ defeats it. 2…Kh8 3 Rh3 is trite, so 2…Kh7 3 Rh3+ Kg8 4 Qc2 with a strong, near winning, position.

 

4…f5 5 g3, 6 Qc4+ and black's king is too exposed.
