Cordingley puzzle 182: comments #chess

October 1, 2013

One of my readers has commented on this recent puzzle.


My solution was superficial: the 'obvious' move to me, it being a puzzle, is 1..Qf3, which wins easily enough.

However, my reader spotted 1…Qb2! which Houdini confirms is even stronger; and Houdini tells me even 1…Bf5 is better than 1…Qf3: though strictly we are only dealing with only alternative ways to win an overwhelming position.

I have updates my Chessbase file and added some light annotations below.
