It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 154

October 26, 2015

White to play and win

1541

Kinnmark v Oliveira, Havana Olympiad 1966

Solution

A nice puzzle: first, a deflection (examine all biffs): 1 Bb6. If 1…Ng5 then 2 Qe3 protects the Bb6 and wins a piece. So 1…Qb6 2 Nh6+! Kh8 (2…gh 3 Qf7+ Kh8[] 4 Qg8 mate)

1542

and now 3 Nf7+, 4 Ne5+ and 6 Ng6 mate is a pretty knight’s tour.
