White to play and win


Kozlovskaya – Kislova, Subotica 1967


Not too hard today: the combination relies on the threat of a Bh7+ discovered attach on d6.

1 Nd6!  and if 1…Bd6 (others don’t help) 2 Bd6 Qd6 3 de wins the Nf6 for if 3…Ne5? 4 Bh7+ picks up the queen.


White therefore wins a pawn.

The whole game, available on Megabase is worth playing through, to see how White nicely exploited her advantage: basically, in the above position, the game continued 3…Qe7 4 ef Qf6 5 Bg6! nicely getting the better minor piece.
