Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 235


White to play and win

KT Solomon v JJ Stwwnkamp 1997

Thank you, Mickey Adams, because it was watching one of his games from which I learnt the motif here…which meant I got the solution instantly. Absent Mickey, examine all biffs would make you consider 1 d6!, and looking for LPDOs would reveal that there is a chance the Bd7 and Bd6 could become ones (if 1..Qd6 2 Qd6 Bd6).

So, 1…Bd6 2 Rad1 Re6 3 Nf5 and a LPDO falls.
