Daily Chess Puzzle

July 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: evaluate 1 Ng4 Nf5, as played in the game


allanbeard v J Honido, 3min blitz 8/7/18


After 1 Ng4 Nf5 2 Nf6 wins: easily after 2…Kh8 3 Nd5+ discovering on the Queen; and also after 2…Kf8 3 Nd5! is a nice mate.
