It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 55

July 20, 2015

White to play and win

Dely v Brzózka, 1963




Given that this is a problem, and we know there is a solution, as opposed to a game, it is easier than otherwise, though not easy. 1 Rg7! Kg7[] 2 Bh6+ Kg8[] (2…Kf8?? drops the Rf8) is easy enough, but then what? Eventually I found the key, 3 Nb6!, biffing the queen, and so gained a tempo.

After 3….cb 4 Qg4+ Kf7 5 Qg7+ and 1-0.
