It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 7

May 29, 2015

White to play and win


Teschner v Zbikowski, Berlin 1963



There is nothing clear cut (in the sense of decisive, unless you are an engine) but instead the developing move 1 Bf4! Is pretty and strong. The f4 square is mined, the point being that if 1…Qf4 then 2 Re7+! and if 2…Ke7, 3 Nd5+ picks up the queen.

So, instead, black must play something like 2…Qg2 when 3 Nf5 regroups, and white is better.
