Chess Puzzle of the Week (159): Solution

M Tal – H Golombek Munich Olympiad 1958

I’ve just published my review of Chess Scribe by David LeMoir.

This position is featured within. The great Mikhail Tal finished off England’s Harry Golombek as follows:

30. Rf4! bxc5 31. Rxh4! Rxh4 32. Qg7+! Ke8 33. Qg8+ Kd6 34. Qxg7+ Kd6 35. Qe7+ and Black resigned as he’s getting mated.

I hope you managed to calculate as well as Tal!
