Daily Chess Puzzle

June 27, 2018

Today’s problem is from one of my recent games

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

1

Allan Beardsworth v Alan Walton, Stockport v Marple 21/6/18

Solution

1 Re6! contains a nice mating net, which Black can’t avoid. 1…g5 2 h4 retains the trap with mate next move, unless Black plays the hopeless 2…Re8.

FEN

r3B3/8/3p4/2bP1kpp/P7/6PP/4RPK1/8 w – – 0 41
