It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 33

June 28, 2015

Black to play and win


Dean v Wallis, Johannesburg 1962




I solved this one instantly, recognising it, and when I saw that the game was played in Jo'burg, realised why. The position was in Reitstein's puzzles from South Africa, my first series of blogs.

So, 1…Re4!

and when white takes the Re4, which he is forced to, 2…de pins the two knights, in Purdy's potassium cyanide motif.
