It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 122

White to play and win

 

 

Hallier v Herman, Hamburg 1965

 

Solution

 

White is getting mated, so desperate measures are needed. Trying first and seeing that 1 Qg3+? Qg3 2 Ne7+ doesn't succeed, I reversed the move order, and, as so often in chess tactics, that worked.

1 Ne7+! Ne7 (1….Re7 2 Rf2 1-0; 2…Re1+ 3 Rf1) 2 Qg3+! Qg3 (2…Ng6 3 Qf2 protects the Rf1) 3 Bf7 mate.
