Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 142

February 2, 2015

Black to play and win

 

 

JJ Steenkamp v Y Aranov 1997

 

Solution

Loose pieces drop off (LPDO, John Nunn) and examine jump biffs (CJS Purdy) (here Qg7*Rc7) so that 1…Bb5! wins.

Everything works. Even if 2 Qc3, which 'almost' defends, 2…Qc3 3 Nc3 Be2 3 Ne2, the final tactic is 3…Ne3+, forking king and rook.
