Daily Chess Puzzle

December 6, 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: evaluate 1 Na7, as played in the game

Dutch - Sugden John N (8...0-0-0)

Dutch v Sugden, London 1964



A near mirror image of Reti-Tartakower from a few days’ ago. 1 Na7+?? Na7 2 Qa7 loses to 2…Qd1+! etc.

Dutch - Sugden John N (10...Qd1+)
