Daily Chess Puzzle

November 3, 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, after Nd3+ Ke3[] in yesterday’s game



O’Sullivan v Walsh, Leinster 1952


1..f2 2 Nf3! []


3 Nd2 Nc5

4 Ke2 Kg2


and a later Ne4 or Nb3 will prise the N away from f1.



8/8/8/8/6kN/3nKp2/8/8 b – – 0 2
