October 28, 2016

Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.

 

White to play and mate Black

Alekhine v Nestor; simul, Trinidad 1939

 

Solution

Solvable, because there are so few options: 1 Rc8 and if 1…Rc8, 2 Qe7! is a double attack: hitting c8 and d8: 1-0.

1432

 

FEN

3r3k/3P1ppp/p3q3/1pR1P3/2p5/Q5PP/P4P1K/8 w – – 0 1
