Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 182

March 14, 2015

White to play and win

O Santos v R Kleiner 1980

 

Solution

 

Fairly standard: examine all biffs leads quickly to 1 Nf6+ (the first move I suspect most players would look at) 1…gf[] 2 Qg4+ Kh8[] 3 ef Rg8[]

 

When 4 Rc8! is a nice, albeit typical, finale, although since black can defer losing by 4…Qd1+, better is the more prosaic 4 Qg8+! mating.
