Great Master (he was not a grandmaster) Rashid Nezhmetdinov. In my opinion he won the most beautiful game, played by people Nezhmetdinov - Chernikov (Rostov-on-don, 1962)! My hometown, the year of my birth... Here is the link - enjoy! http://chessplace.livejournal.com/36891.html I think in the game against Suetin he played
1. Nd7!

Sorry to disappoint you kai2011. You have the right idea for your first move, right square but wrong piece. :)

Thank you for the tip. I\'ll look into it.

threatening Rd1+, wins.

I know this puzzle is a little difficult to solve but the solution seems so simple that I can only be amazed by it. Until next time.

21. ... Qd6! It seems the best move for dlack.
What will white do after 21. Nd7 ?

This is not covered in the solution of the puzzle so I\'ll try to answer your question the best that I can.

After 21.Rd7 Qd6 22.Qxd6 Bxd6 23.Rxd6, there\'s the threat of taking the pawn on c6 and Rd8. If black tries to solve the problem in one go with 23...Bb7, then 24.Rd7 trapping the Black King on the 8th rank with Rg1 to follow and Rg7. If Black let the c6 pawn fall, the pawn majority of White on both sides of the board will be enough to ensure the win.

For your question of 21.Nd7, I believe 21...Kd8 to be the right move. I can\'t see any other move for White except 22.Nf6+ unless he\'s willing to defend the Knight on d7 because of the pin by the Black Bishop on c8.

Hoping I was able to answer your inquiry kai2011.
