It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 60

July 25, 2015

White to play and win


Darga v Duckstein, Clare Benedict, Lucerne 1963


(firstly, a slightly different design today, and in the next few days. My blog is hosted on and the site has refreshed their blog writing facility, and I wanted to try it, as an alternative to the Blogsy app which I have used on my iPad for years. I wanted to see how good the tool is now (much improved) and see which is faster (it is): so from now on I will oscillate between the two, depending on whether I have my iPad, PC or laptop with me).

Not too hard today, with the open h file and K on g2 inviting action. So, 1 Qg6! and if the Q isn’t taken, 2 Rh1; and same if the queen is captured.
