It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #275

February 27, 2016

White to play and win

2751

Vasyukov v Browne, Skopje 1970

Solution

Nice, but fairly simple: 1 Qh7! has to be tried, and if 1…Nh7 then 2 Bg7+ Kg8[]3 Be5+ and regains the Queen.

2752

This happened in the game, and Black struggled on for a long while: the game isn’t over, but White is far better.
