It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle # 214

December 25, 2015

Black to play and win


Adamski -Geller, Lugano 1968


A standard motif: perhaps a standard motif because of Efim Geller.  1..Nfe4 and the Qd2 is overloaded: it can’t defend both the Bg5 and Nd4.


Black emerges a pawn up, though in the game Black didn’t take the Pe4 (after Qg5 Qe3+) instead developing his pieces: White’s c4 and e4 pawn might his bishop weak, and one of the pawns falls.

Because it is Christmas Day (but please note, I write these blogs days in advance) I will add some further puzzles.
