Daily Chess Puzzle

January 31, 2019

; Today’s problem is from the current Gibraltar tournament. The posting, written 29/1/19, was mid-play, before the game was finished

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: examine 1 Re6, as played in the game

Tari v Sadzikowski, Gibraltar 29/1/19



1 Re6?? was a mistake (1 h3, for instance) but Black missed 1…Ne4! and the game is over. Black wins the exchange.


Instead, the game went on; at the time of writing this blog, some days before publication, the game hadn’t finished.
