It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 44

July 9, 2015

Black to play and win


O'Kelly v Rodrigues, Wilderness 1962




Fairly easy: examine all biffs and Purdy's potassium cyanide motif lead to 1..f4+, after which it is not to hard to navigate. 2 Rf4[] Rg1+ 3 Kh2[] Rg2+ defends the R, and afterwards 4….Rdf4. White hasn't either got a stalemate trick or a bank rank mate or perpetual, so it is game over.
