It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #331

April 24, 2016

Black to play and win

(In the game, White’s last move had been ‘Draw? !!’ to which Black’s reply had been ‘Yes??’.


Calvo v Hamann, Clare Benedict, Menorca 1974




Not too hard, since, knowing there is a win, and with so few possibilities, any idea has to be tried.

1…h3[] 2 Kh4 g1(Q)+! is the key move, and once seen, it is clear the game is over. 3 Bg1[] Kg2 and the h pawn gets shouldered through.
