It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 133

White to play and win


Minic v Honfi, Vrnjacka Banja 1966




A standard problem: the Black Queen is tied to defending the Rd8, with the Black king in a net, and 1 Qa7! overloads the Qc7. All that needs to be checked is that 1..Rd5 itself doesn't succeed, since White's King is also in a net, but it doesn't, due to 2 Qa8+, mating. The terms in bold are CJS Purdy words, as my regular readers will be very familiar with.
