It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #82

August 15, 2015

White to play and win

Tal v Benko, Amsterdam 1964

 

Solution

 

A rest day today: 1 Rd8+ picks up either the LPDO rook, if 1…Ke7, or the Q, if the R is taken.

 

The problem was so easy that it caused me to look at the game in Megabase, to see what Black's last move was. As expected, it was Qc5*Pe5; my engine says that even if Black hadn't captured, white was winning.
