It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #309

White to play and win


Fischer v Spassky, game 8, 1972


A rest day today: the Nd5 discovering Qd2-LPDO Qa5 is standard; sometimes it doesn’t work, often it does: here it works, because of the LPDO Bc4 hit by the Rc1, and if it plays a desperado Be2 or Ba2, White also has the desperado Ng6+. So White wins a pawn.


Not exactly winning, unless you are Fischer, Carlsen, or similar. But at least the tictac wins a pawn.
