Daily Chess Puzzle

June 17, 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: examine 1 Bc4!! Nc4?

1

Huguet v Simonovic, Paris 1963

 

Solution

After 1 Bc4 Nc4

3

2 Rh8+! Kh8[] 3 Qh2+ Kg8[]

Now what?

4

Tomorrow I shall give more comments on this problem.
