Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 148

February 8, 2015

White to play and win

 

M De Wit v KT Solomon 2003

 

Solution

Examine all biffs leads fairly quickly to 1 Rc7+ and if 1…Nc7, 2 Nc7 and the pawn queens, and black doesn't have a fortress (if nothing else, because of the Pa4). If 1…Kd8, 2 Rf7 not only wins another pawn but threatens Rf8+, and if 1…Ke6, 2 Rc8 threatens both Ra8 and Re8+ skewering the king and rook.
