It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 128

September 30, 2015

White to play and win

Black played 1….Qb3 here.



Damjanovic v Lehmann, Beverwijk 1966




After examining routine moves, like taking on b3 with either piece, you look for something special, and 1 Bg5! is not too hard to consider, following examine all biffs or because the Be7 has the function of jump-buffing the Qa3- it is tied to being ready to capture the Qa3. All being terms from my favourite author, CJS Purdy.


If 1…Qa3 then the zwischenzug 2 Be7! wins a piece, by the threat of mate.
