Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 98


White to play and win

F Mentz v H Bouwer 1985

This one took me a few moments to solve, since at first I tried a complex line, 1 Qe8+ Kh7[] 2 Rf8, and tries to make it work, before, seeing it was too hard, and then reversing the moves and seeing that 1 Rf8+! wins immediately: 1…Kf8[] 2 Re8 mate.
