Daily Chess Puzzle

October 28, 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. (Actually, today is another game featuring yesterday’s players)

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


Sanguinetti v Najdorf, Buenos Aires 1949


1…Qd7! is a nice move, not fearing the doubling of his pawns, since that would give Black an open h file; and also permitting a later Re6; so better than 1…Qe6.
