White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

Instead of rook and pawn endings, we’ll do some elementary bishop and pawn endings this week and then go back to mating attacks. Both study themes win games, though, so chess players need to sharpen their skills at endgames as well.

This one is simple, but there is a trick in the notes! 1.Bf6+ Kc8 If 1...Kc7 2.Be7 Bf2 3.Bd6+! Kxd6 4.e7 2.Be7 Bf2 3.Bd6 Bh4 4.Be5 Bd8 5.Bf6 Bxf6 6.Kxf6 Kd8 7.Kf7 Remember that trick! Another trick coming!
