Daily Chess Puzzle

April 29, 2019

Today’s problem is from an old edition of Chess magazine.  Not sure which, since I took a copy of this puzzle without recording the magazine date.

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.

Black to play
