Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 211

April 11, 2015

White to play and win

W Kobese v JJ Steenkamp 2005




The first move is obvious, the problem with this puzzle is deciding the follow up, but once you see (after 1 Rh7+ Kh7) that 2 Rh1+ is blocked by 2…Bh6, then the alternative biff 2 Ng5+ has to be tried, and it quickly falls into place.

Black is forced to play 2…Kh8[] when 3 Rh1+ follows, and white takes whatever would in whatever order black puts on the h file, and then Qh7 mate follows.
