It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #304

March 27, 2016

Evaluate 1..Nh4 2 Rc8 Rc8 3 Qh3

3041

Larsen v Fischer, Denver 1971

Solution

Larsen didn’t play 1 Rc8 after Fischer had played Nh4: after 2 Qh3

3042

Black has 2…Rcf8! and if 3 Qh4, Rh6! traps the Queen.

3043

Larsen instead played 1 Qd3, but lost regardless.
