It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 191

White to play and win


A Zaitsev v Furman, Harkov 1967


Not too hard today. After rejecting more obvious biffs like 1 Qb8+ and 1 Rg8+?, the examine all biffs approach leads naturally to 1 Ng6+!! the point being that after 1..hg 2 Qh4+ leads to all three major pieces attacking the lone king, noting the the Pf6 is double attacked, and undefended.
