It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle

June 12, 2015

White to play and win

Solution

 

Yesterday's puzzle from Teschner's book featured GM Gyozo Forintos, and in writing the blog, I had cause to google him, and read his Wikipedia entry. It contained two featured games of his, the first of which I have played through, and is a gem: a controlled, positional middle game, culminating in winning a shaky extra pawn, retaining it with skill and care, followed by a lovely tactical conclusion.

1 Rh8+! Kh8 (1…Kg7 2 Qf8 mate) 2 Qf8+ Kh7[] 3 Qf7+ Kh8[] 4 Qf8+ Kh7[] 5 Bg6+! pretty Kg6[] 6 Qg8 mate.
