Daily Chess Puzzle

October 20, 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 Qf3 Ng6 2 Rf7 h4 3 Rf6 as played in the game


Breustedt v Brameyer, Butzow 1969



1..Ng6? and 2…h4 were blunders, as were 2 Rf7 and 3 Rf6. The players missed Qh5+! Kh5[] Rh7 mate.
