It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #316

April 9, 2016

Black to play and win after 1 Qc7?



Andersson v Hartston, Hastings 1972/73



A pretty solution: not too hard, once you spot it: 1…Qh3+! and if 2 Kh3 Bf1 mate, or if 2 Kg1 or 2 Kf2, 2…Qf1 mate….except that Teschner’s book has the B on c4, Q on e6, whereas my diagrams are from Megabase!


Similar solution, fudged problem? The game’s moves in Megabase seem logical, so I think somehow Teschner has got his diagram incorrect.
