It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 119

September 21, 2015

White to play and win

 

 

Stein v Liberzon, Erevan 1965

 

Solution

 

The first move is obvious, but the position depends on seeing the nice move further into the combination, one which produces a smile:

1 Qh6+ Bh6[] 2 Rh6+[] Kg7[]

3 Rh7+! Kf6[] 4 Rf8 mate. Pretty.
