Good grief, I believe I have solved a study. This almost never happens - certainly not with any of the positions in that Timman book someone gave me for Christmas.Not the most disguised theme, but I suppose it was 1904.
You are allowed to celebrate by giving the solution....
Yes, an obvious theme to trap & win the queen, but nicely done even for 1904. I like the way it operates predominantly on white squares.I'll let JC "celebrate", as he was invited to do so by EJH.
Well, if I did that my pleasure might be spoiled by finding out I had it wrong.Still, as you ask 1 Rg6+ Ke6 2 Rg8 Qf3 3 Be2 is my proposal.
Yep: there's a couple of variations but they're given where I found the study, which was in the Chess Café Endgame Studies Archive.First published, as it says there, in Rigaer Tageblatt, 1904.
