Daily Chess Puzzle

June 15, 2018

In similar vein to yesterday’s position, what was I hoping for, and what actually happened, in this game.

Black to play

allanbeard v Aandrew Playchess, 3 minute blitz, 11/6/18

Solution

Black played, as I hoped, 1…Qc7, no doubt planning 2…Qc6; but it permitted 2 Qg7+!! and after 2…Kg7[] 3 Ne8+ forks the king and queen; 1-0.

Nice to be able to sac the queen; today’s problem, of course, is easier and more prosaic than yesterday’s.
