Daily Chess Puzzle

March 4, 2019

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 d7+ Bd7 2 Bb8, as played in the game

Taimanov Mark E - Bronstein David Ionovich (69...c6)

Taimanov v Bronstein, Leningrad 1960

 

Solution

2…c5+!! and the players agreed a draw. Very pretty.

Taimanov Mark E - Bronstein David Ionovich (71...c5+)

FEN

1nk5/8/2pP2p1/5bP1/BP1K1B2/8/8/8 w – – 0 70
