Forintos v Tomovic, 1957

Solution

A pretty one. I suspect I have seen it before, since the solution was obvious, including the nice final coup.

1 Rh8+ Kh8 (1…Kg6 is straightforward: 2 Bd3+ Qd2+) 2 Qf8+ Kh7[] 3 Bd3+ g6 (or Black can thrown in desperados such as Be4)

2042

4 Qf7+ Kh8[] 5 Qf8+ Kh7[]

2043

6 Bg6+! the nice final coup 6…Kg8 7 Qg8 mate.

2044

Elegant.
