It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #317

April 10, 2016

White to play and win


Bellin v Keene, Amsterdam 1973


Ignore threats: imagine for a moment they can’t possibly be executed…and you see that there is a mating net… so 1 Ne5 Be4 2 Rd7+ Nd7 3 Rd7+ Kf6 (or Kf8) 4 Rf7 mate.


Or, just as good, 1 Nf6 Nf6[] 2 Ne5 with the same threat: and also threatening Nc6+  after which the King’s protection of the Nf6 is lost.
