It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle #334

April 28, 2016

Black to play and win

3341

Jones v Dueball, Nice Olympiad 1974

Solution

A difficult, and a nice one, today. It took me a while, and I doubt I would have seen it in practice, but the stunning 1…Re1!! just does enough to win.

3342

The Rf1 is tied to f2, to prevent Nf2+ hitting the Q; so 2 Be1 when 2…Nb2! is a lovely double attack on Q and R.

3343

Lovely.
