Daily Chess Puzzle

April 18, 2018

Today’s problem continues yesterday’s look at Caruana- Hou Yifan, Baden-Baden 6/4/2018.

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: White has just played 1 Pc2* Nd3
