Daily Chess Puzzle

January 14, 2019

Today’s problem is a nice one seen recently on Chessbase.

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

Edouard Romain - Zumsande Martin (32...Bf4).gif

Edouard v Zumsande, Bundesliga 25/10/2018

 

Solution

1 Rf4! (obvious, but the follow up isn’t) 1…Rf4 [] 2 h3! (the point) and White wins a piece.

edouard romain - zumsande martin (34.h3)

Black gets the Pd4 after 2…Qg7 but White is winning, partly due to the exposed Black king.

 

FEN

5rk1/7p/p7/3p4/Pp1Ppbq1/1P2B3/6PP/4QRK1 w – – 0 33
