Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 176

White to play and win

 

 

RF Griffiths v G Boulle 1968

 

Solution

 

Very nice how white's pieces combine: 1 Rg6! and white's pieces (queen, bishop and advanced pawn, precisely the same material as in the previous example) mate. The main line is 1…fg 2 Qe4+ Qe5 3 Qc6+! (3 Qa8+ picking up the Rf8 would lose because of Qe1 mate) and mate.
