Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 168

White to play and win

 

 

NP Van der Nat v D Van den Heever 2004

 

Solution

 

A 'can opener' move is required, and 1 Bh6! is the natural try, and after 1…gh 2 g7! it is really game over: there is a double attack on the LPDO Re8 and the Bf8- again, as so often, Purdy's motif of jump biff (Qh5-e8) and Nunn's LPDO search are the key to this position.
