Daily chess puzzle

January 20, 2019

Another position from ‘Chess Combination as a Fine Art’ by Keres. Today’s blog is affected by my PC having failed and needing repair or replacement, so is in different format to normal. How long it will be before it returns to normal format will be dependent on if the PC can be returned to good health.

White to move and win

Guseev v Fedin, RSFSR 1967


1 Nc5+! Kf5[] 2 Rf1+ Kg4 3 h3+ Kh4 4 Ne4!

And there is nothing Black can do except desperadoes. Kh2 and ideas like Be5 and g3+ or Rf4+ check are threatened.


No FEN whilst this problem persists. Sorry.
