It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 212

White to play and win


Fischer- Ree, Netanya 1968


Not hard today: 1 Qe6+ Qe6[] 2 Bd5 and White remains a pawn up after 2…Qd5 3 Rd5


Continuing slightly further, if 3…Bc3 4 Rc1 wins the c7 pawn, so is just an exchange of pawns, and White’s rook reach the seventh rank. Since the Bg5 and Nf3 defend c1 and e1 respectively, there are no back rank mating saves for Black.
