It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #214 (3) onwards

December 25, 2015

Black to play and win




So, as of Megabase 2012, this position has been played 30 times, including three by Efim Geller in 1968.

Amazingly, White won 5, drew 6; losing the others. The highest ranked Black loser was Sergey Movsesian, at a time when he was 2380. The most instructive game is when the highest ranked White fell for the line, Yuri Kuzubov- it is worth playing through, to show how he created counterplay. I won’t include the game here, since the version in Megabase is annotated- but, as said, well worth looking at.
