It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle – another puzzle today

October 13, 2015

Since the main, Teschner book puzzle is easy, a tougher problem from a recent (June 2015) edition of Chess Today.

Tougher, but one which is very pleasurable to solve.

White to play and win

 

Solution

 

1 Ne8+ Kg8 (1…Kh7 2 Rf7+ and mates; 1…Kh8 2 Qf8+ and mates) 2 Nf6+ Kg7 (2…Rf6 3 Qb7 Nb7[] 4 Rf6 + -)

3 Qf8+!! (the star move) 3…Kf8 4 Re8+ Kg7[] 5 Rg8 mate. Pretty.
