It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #256

February 5, 2016

Black to play and win


Jacobsen v Ljubojevic, Groningen 1969-70


A lovely one today, and very hard – it took me a good while, looking at very confusing and similar lines, and throwing away various pieces on b4, e3, d4 before finding 1…Nf4! with the key move then being 2 gf Qd3!! – for a while I tried to make 2..ef work, but, if nothing else, 3 Qe1 refutes it.


But after 2..Qd3 White is totally trussed up: 3 Re1 0-0-0 and at some stage, trouble on f2 or somewhere else, dependent on how White wriggles.
