It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 194

White to play and win


Bednarski v Tarazi, Havana 1966


1 Qg2+ is the natural biff, with 1…Kf8? failing to 2 Rh8+ picking up the LPDO Rb8.

Teschner’s book gives 1…Nfg4 in reply, and after 2 fg fg 3 Qh2; better is 1…Neg4 2 fg fg when the game goes on, partly because the Nf6 is a better defender than the Ne5, but more because 3 Qh2 can be met by 3…Qh5!


simplifying into an ending: 4 Qh5 Nh5 5 Rh5


White is probably winning , but the game goes on- there is some chance for White to mess up.
