Daily Chess Puzzle

November 23, 2018

Today’s problem is from the recent women’s world chess championships.

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


Aliaga Fernandez v Gunina, Khanty-Mansiysk, 3/11/18


1…Kc4! creates a net and White is helpless against the threat of 2…Nd5; Black wins the exchange and then mops up.



6R1/8/1n6/3kppBp/8/4KPP1/1r5P/8 b – – 0 44
