Daily Chess Puzzle

March 8, 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


Pesch v Koehlei, Sinzig 1959


1 Ne5! Bb4 2 Qh5+ Ke7 3 Rg7+ Kd6


4 Nc4+!! Rc4

5 Re6+!!


5…Ke6[[ 6 Qe5 mate.



Very pretty.
