Daily Chess Puzzle

July 10, 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 Qe6

Pos29

Kornfilt v Hukel, corres 1965

 

Solution

1 Qe6 Qd8!

Pos30

and Black defends, and the position is equal after 1 Re8+ Qe8[] 2 Qa6 Rd8 with enough activity to regain the b pawn.

FEN

2r1r2k/4R1pp/p7/1p6/2nqN1Q1/P5PP/1P5K/5R2 w – – 0 1
