It was composed by K.A.L. Kubbel, USSR 1936

White to play and win.

Before leaving this wonderful wee puzzle we can squeeze another idea tuck away inside it..

As I said earlier, a Rook v Bishop and two pawns is usually drawn. Any
winning chances are usually with the Bishop and two pawns player.

Red Hot Pawn players are losing drawn games by not realising that the wrong

I was strolling through RHP games looking for an idea and happened upon a good
one but before we see this game I’ll slip in a study by D. Joseph from BCM 1922.

White to play and win.
