It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 180

November 21, 2015

White to play and win

 

Cuellar v Reshevsky, Sousse 1967

 

Solution

 

As with puzzle 178 two days ago, ignore the threat, as part of your thinking. Black is threatening the queen, but 1 Re4! is a double fatal attack: a threat of Qg5+, Qg7 mate if the queen isn't captured, and Re8 mate if it is.
