Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 221

Black to play and win

 

 

GW McEhinny v LR Reitstein , corres, 1959-60

 

Solution

 

After trying both 1..Bg3+ and 1…Rg3+, and seeing that neither gets black's pieces 'into' the king, that is especially the h3 square, it is not too hard to see 1…Bf2 which does the job. White can't prevent Bg1+ followed by Qh3+ mating.
