Daily Chess Puzzle

April 7, 2018

Today’s problem is a snippet from the recent European Individual Championships. I typically glance at short decisive games in the major tournaments.

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

Harutyunian v Martinovic, Batumi 27/3/18

 

Solution

Examine all biffs as per the mandate of CJS Purdy. 1 Nb7! and if 1…Bb7, 2 Rd7 forks the two LPDO bishops.
