Daily Chess Puzzle

September 23, 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: examine 1….f6 2 Re2 fg 3 Qb4 Qd4, as played in the game


Keres v Beni, Luhcovice 1969


At the end of the sequence, 4 c5+ wins the LPDO Q.
