It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 95

August 28, 2015

Black to play and win

 

Cevallos v Möhring,Tel Aviv 1964

 

Solution

 

Straightforward today, and with some similarities to Puzzle number 91; the motif is back rank, or back file, mate, with a sacrifice (and both rook sacrifices) being the enticing mechanism, drawing the king to the h file.

1….Rh1+! 2 Kh1[] Bf2 and White is helpless against 3…Rh8 mate.
