Daily Chess Puzzle

June 26, 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: evaluate 1 Bb1


Tavernier v Grodner, Charleville 1952


Black unpins by 1…h4+ 2 Kg4[] f5+! 3 Rf5[], permitting 3…Rg2 mate.



8/2n2p2/6k1/R5pp/8/5PKP/B1r5/8 w – – 0 1
