Daily Chess Puzzle

November 17, 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


Titenko v Murey, Moscow 1963


1…Qd2+! [] 2 Kg1 (2 Kg3 Qf4+ is a trite perpetual)

2…Qc1+!! and 3 Qc1[] stalemate.



2Q5/8/p3R3/P5pP/3p2P1/3k4/5K2/3q4 b – – 0 52
