It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #324

April 17, 2016

White to play and win


Ribli v Hennings, Leipzig 1973


A complete mess on the board: in blitz, you would instantly play 1 Nh5!; or maybe 1 Nf7…and in fact they both win, with 1 Nh5! being the cleanest since the N can’t be taken, due to f6+ dis +.

After both moves, Black has various captures or defences, too many to consider, and I’ll leave it to my readers to delve as far as they wish, if at all.
