It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #340

White to play and win


Miles-Basman, Hastings 1974


Oh dear. I spent many sittings trying to solve the position in the book, without success: the B was on g5, where nothing works.

In fact, in the game, Tony had just played Bg5-f4+, met by d7-d6. so the B is on f4 as I have shown, and 1 Ne7! is fairly straightforward: 1…Qe4 2 Rfe1 Qf4 3 Rd4! (poisoned- 3…Qd4 4 Nc6+ forks king, queen and rook) 3..Qg5 4 Rc4 and mates.
