Daily Chess Puzzle

February 14, 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.

White to play

Mohring v Fiensch, GDR 1961

Solution

Not too hard today. First a Greek gift, then a follow up. 1 Bh7+ Kh7 2 Bf6! and it is game over.
