It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #273

February 25, 2016

White to play and win


Fischer v Panno, Buenos Aires 1970


One from my chess education: I knew this game, probably from a book by David Levy on Fischer that I read as a child. 1 Be4! brings one more piece to the party.


It can’t be captured, else 2 Nge4 heads to f6; so instead 1…Qe7 2 Nh7 Nh7 3 hg fg 4 Bg6 and if Qg7 then 5 Bh7+ Qg7 and 6 Qe6+ picks up the LPDO Nc8.
