It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #293

White to play and win


Tukmakov- Panno, Buenos Aires 1970


I chose the prosaic 1 Rh7+! which wins after 1…Kh7[] 2 Qe4+ Bf5 3 Qh4+ Nh6[] 4 Ne7.


If the N is recaptured, then 5 g6+ wins the LPDO Queen.

But White had better, 1 e6!!


For if 1…ed, 2 Bd3 and Black is powerless: best for readers to look at Black’s tries and see his helplessness for themselves.
