Daily Chess Puzzle

July 4, 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: White played 1 Qc7: analyse


Haltgren v Henderson, California 1965


1… Bd4 2 Re2

2…Na8! deflects the Queen so that it is no longer able to defend the Pg3: 0-1.
