Test your chess: Reitstein problem 192

Great post that is worthy of some study.

How does white win after:

1…Ra6; 1…Be6; or 1…Qh4 (the move played in the game)?




AJA Cameron v F Murray 1910

1…Ra6
2 Qh3, and if say 2…Rd8 3 Ra6, when 3…ba 4 Bf7+ and mate next move.
1…Be6
2 Qh3, when say 2…Rfd8 is a sensible try.

What next isn’t especially obvious: 3 Re6? doesn’t work, since 3…Qe6 4 Bf7+ Qh6.

Eventually, I saw that white must simply exert more pressure: 3 Bf3+ Kg8 4 Qh6 and the double attack on g7 and e6 wins.

1…Qh4

A slightly different finish: 2 Rh6+! and mate after 2…gh[] 3 Qg8 mate.
