Daily Chess Puzzle

January 13, 2018

Today’s problem is from the 1972 book “Chess Combination as a Fine Art”, a book based on articles published in the 1950s-1960s by Kurt Richter.

Since the start of 2018, I have decided to adopt the style of only saying which side is to play: and not giving an idea if the move wins or otherwise, unless on occasion I think signposting would be helpful. Instead, the problems are posed with the instruction to decide what you would play, as in a game.

Black to play


Mann v Papp, Budapest 1956


Fairly easy today. 1…Rf3+! forces 2 gf[] when 2…Bf1 is mate.



8/7k/b2N1r2/p3Rpp1/7p/2P4K/1P1R2PP/5r2 b – – 0 1
