Daily Chess Puzzle

September 9, 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


unknown players, 1944


1…Rc7!! (though my engine says 1…Rh8 is also equal).

2 b5!! =


2…Qd1+! 3 Rd1[] Rb7



2r5/1Q1R3p/1p4pk/7q/1P3P2/B3n3/7P/7K b – – 0 1
