Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 229

April 30, 2015

Black to play and win

Black played here 1…Ne7, met with by 2 Nd4: then what?

 

M Pines v KF Kirby 1952-53

 

Solution

 

A rest day: 2…f5 3 Rh4 Ng6 wins the Nd4; or 3 Rf4 g5 similarly.

However, white's best is 3 Re7+ and the win still has to be earned after 3…Ke7 4 Kd3. No doubt black is better, but would I win against Magnus Carlsen if he were white?!
