Daily Chess Puzzle

April 30, 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.

 

White to play

Wlodarczyk O - Wypych D (22...Rxc2)

Wlodarczyk v Wypych, Poland 2011

 

Solution

1 Rd4 Qc3 2 Re4! de 3 Qg5

Wlodarczyk O - Wypych D (25.Qg5)

and after 3..g6, 4 Ne7+ 5 Qf6+ 6 Nf5+, it is mate next move.Wlodarczyk O - Wypych D (28.Nf5+)

 

FEN

5rk1/1b3ppp/p7/1p1pPN2/1q2n3/1P1RQ1P1/P1r3BP/5RK1 w – – 0 23
