Daily Chess puzzle

November 15, 2016

A day’s break from my series taken from Matni Udar.

Today, a position from one of my recent ICC 3-0 blitz games.

White to play and win

queen-2

Allan Beardsworth v M Elgarby, ICC 3 minute blitz

Solution

A variation of a standard theme, which I visualise as “taking the feet away from under someone”. 1 Rc2! Qc2[] 2 e8(Q)+! forces 2…Re8 when 3 Qc2 wins the now LPDO Queen.
