Daily Chess Puzzle

August 12, 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.

Black to play: evaluate 1…Bd4+ 2 Be3 Qg5, as played in the game



Trivial, today. 1…Bd4+ 2 Be3 Qg5?? is met with by 3 Qd4 and the pin is broken: 1-0.
