Daily Chess Puzzle

January 19, 2019

Today’s problem was seen on Twitter in November; the game isn’t in Megabase but I found it on chessgames.com where some postings doubt its authenticity; but the combination is very nice.

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

 

J M de Oliveira Gomes - Joaquim Gentil Caetano Netto (14.Kg2).gif

Gomes v Netto, Rio de Janeiro 7/1/1942

Solution

1…Rg8!;

and in the game 2 c3 Nh4+! 3 gh g5

j m de oliveira gomes - joaquim gentil caetano netto (16...g5)

and Black wins the queen, with an attack continuing.

 

FEN

r3k1r1/1pp2ppp/pb1p1qn1/4p2b/2B1P3/N1PP1NPP/PP2QPK1/R4R2 b q – 0 15
