Daily Chess Puzzle

November 13, 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 after Black played 1…Ne5


Koberl v Tipary, Budapest 1955


1 g6+!


1…Kg6 (1…Ng6 2 Qf7+) 2 Qg1+ Kf6 (2…Kh7 3 Qb1 1-0) 3 Qg5+!


and stalemate after 3..Kg5[].


8/Q4p1k/4p1n1/3p2P1/5p2/5P1K/2r5/8 b – – 0 1
