Daily puzzle: my pick of wonderful moves from 2016

January 1, 2017

I will start the New Year with a fairly random selection of moves seen during 2016: skewed to the last few months, since I only thought of making such a selection in December, and then had to try to recall some of my favourite moments.

White to play and win


Jobava-Ponomariov, Baku Olympiad 10/9/16


1 Bh6!!

Incredible: what class to think of such a move. For the game continuation, see my Cloud Database (the game file it includes was, I think, but am not sure, pasted from, my main source of chess news).
