It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #283

March 6, 2016

White to play and win

Black has just played …h6, aiming to trap the B if it captures on e7

 

2831

Vranesic v del Corral, Siegen 1970

Solution

A nice puzzle: when you see that Black’s Queen is almost in a net, using CJS Purdy’s terms, the solution isn’t too hard.

  1. Be7! Nc6 2 Qa4 Ne7 3 Rd1 traps the queen.

2832

Black can grovel on, but the game is in the technical phase of winning a won game.
