White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

The first thing that hits you about this position is that the Black g-pawn can race down to queen before White can queen. So, how do you win?

This was a study by the endgame composing genius, Rinck. 1.b7 g4 2.Nxb8 g3 3.Nc6 g2 4.Nd4 Kxd4 5.b8=Q g1=Q 6.Qxa7+ A great construction!
