Daily Chess Puzzle

March 5, 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


Ansorge v Hubner, Cologne 1960



1 h6?? loses: 1 Kf4 probably draws (I think draws- note h1 is a White square)

1..Be5! 2 Kg5 Ke5 3 Kh5[] Kf6 4 g5+[] Kf5 5 g6[] hg mate.


8/6bp/4k3/6KP/6P1/8/8/8 w – – 0 1
