5th of December – Still not so bad

A nice little tactic takes the full point. Not too hard yet…

    I would play 1.Rc8+ Ke7 (1…Kf7 2.c7 Nxc7 3.Ra7 Rc3 4.Bb6 +-) 2.Bc5+ Kf7 3.c7 Nxc7 4. Ra7 +-.

    Of course I mean 1.Ra8+, not 1.Rc8+ 🙂

    I wanted to play 3.Rf8 Nxf8 4.c7 but missed
    3…Kg6 -:(

    My first reaction was:
    1.Bc5 (protecting the pawn from the black rook, and threatening Re7+) Nxc5 (2…Kd8 3.Bd6!) 2.c7 +-

    But then I realised that after 1.Bc5 Rc3! things are no longer so simple. Changing the move order somewhat; 1.Ra8+ ought to win as Ray wrote above

    how about Bc5 Nxc5 (Kd8 Bd6; Rb8 Re7+) Ra8 and then c7, c8Q

    As Jimmy said, 1.Bc5? Rc3!=. So give the check first as Ray indicates.
