Informant Combinations

I saw the power of the horses and the discovery/pin in this problem, but missed the deflection. The problem is from the Combinations section of Informant 106, as was the position in "Monday Morning Tactics."

White to move

I should spend more time training with Chess Informant. I have the first 106 issues, and hence many hundreds of combinations to solve and study.

  1. It's tempting to play 1.Nxf6+, but that goes nowhere after 1...Kd8. So a second look reveals the nasty deflection . . . (must not be a spoiler!)
