Daily Chess Puzzle

April 28, 2019

Today’s problem is from the recent Bangkok Open. A lovely finish by my school mate Nigel Short can’t go unpublished in this blog.

As is my custom, I only say 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.
