White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

In the game Andreikin-Ashiku, Macedonian League, 2016, White played one move and Black resigned. What was the move?


Solution:

Seeing the precarious positions of the black knights White played 1.h4! and it was over. If the pawn is captured, then g5 wins a knight. If it isn’t captured, then hxg5 wins a knight. If the king moves over to defend the back rank knight, then that knight is pinned and the other knight goes. Very efficient move!
