Daily Chess Puzzle

March 3, 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: White played 1 Kg3


Bruchner v Koch, Berlin 1954



It is mate in 6. 1…Rf3+ 2 Kh4 Ne7 3 g5[] Ng6+ 4 Kg5[] Rh6


And after the desperado Nf4 Rf4, Black mates next move by Rf5+/


7r/p2k2p1/1pn1pr2/3p2Pp/P2P3n/2BP3N/R4PKP/2R5 w – – 0 1
