It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #345

May 9, 2016

White to play and win


Mestel v Ball, Birmingham 1975


A nice piece of calculation, which was pleasing to see through to the end. 1 Rd8 Re7 2 Ng5+

(where, in the game, Black resigned), seeing:


2…hg 3 Qg8+ Kh6[] 4 Re7+ Qe7[] 5 Qh8+ Qh7[] 6 Qf6!


and Black can’t prevent a subsequent Rh8. Very nice, and a pleasing finish to Teschner and Miles’ puzzle book.
