It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 157

October 29, 2015

Black to play and win

1571

Vizantiadis v Pachman, Vrnjacka Banja 1967

 

Solution

 

Examine all biffs yet again works. 1…Bf2+! wins a pawn after 2 Qf2 Qc4;

1572

so instead 2 Kf2, when 2…Qc5+ 3 Kf1 Ng4! and the threat of 4…Nh2 mate means that White can’t move his Bc4, so that Ne3+ next move captures it. Or 2….Ng4+ is probably stronger, with 3 Kg1 being met by 3…Qc5+ mating.

1573
