Daily Chess Puzzle

November 4, 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


Pilnick v Reshevsky, New York 1942



1 Qf2 1/2-1/2

An easy one today.

Surprisingly, in the book, Black’s pawns are on c4 and e4 and not on g4 and h4. Most odd. My position is from Megabase.


8/kp6/p7/P4Q2/6pp/4q3/8/7K w – – 0 93
