It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 53

White to play and win, after Black plays 1…Bg5

Ofstad v Uhlmann, 1963

 

Solution

Black could draw by 1…Ne6, forcing a draw after 2 Ne6+ Kf7[] 3 Nf4+ Kf6 (3…Kf8 4 Ne6+ 1/2) 4 Re6+ Kf7[] (4…Kg5?? 5 Nh3 mates). Instead, his 1…Bg5?? loses.

2 Qd6+! Be7 3 Re7 Ne7 and now 4 Qf6+ is a pretty meting line.

4…gf[] 5 Bh6 mate.
