Daily Chess Puzzle

November 9, 2018

Today’s problem is from another game between Darga and Spassky.

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


Spassky v Darga, Beverwijk, 1967


1 Ng6! fg[] 2 Bd5 and Black’s pawns are disrupted.

A nice petite combination.

The Queen is LPDO and the Pe6 pinned because of the threatened jump-biff.
