It’s Your Move: daily chess puzzle

May 29, 2016

I have now finished my ‘pick of the best’ selection from Teschner and Miles’ “It’s Your Move”. I shall shortly start a new series, from a book that I have now selected, but first one or two random puzzles.

White to play and win




Allan Beardsworth v “Guestopedda” Internet Chess Club, 3-0 blitz, 6th May 2016


It is nice when you see non-elementary tactics in blitz. Here, 1 Bg6! wins, since if 1…Kg6 2 Qg3+ and 4 Re7 is fatal, and otherwise if 1…fg 2 Re7+ enters with decisive effect.
