Daily Chess Puzzle

May 6, 2019

Today’s problem is from the recent Grenke Chess Classic.

 

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

Keymer Vincent - Meier Georg (59...c4)

 

Keymer v Meier, Karlsruhe 24//4/19

 

Solution

Watchng live, I didn’t at first see why Black had played c5-c4, nor what was wrong with b3*c4.

I soon did: 1 bc?? g1(Q))+ 2 Qg1 stalemate.

Keymer Vincent - Meier Georg (61.Qxg1=)

Daniel King has produced a super video on the ending on his Power Chess YouTube channel. Well worth watching.

FEN

8/8/1K6/8/2p4p/1P5k/6p1/4Q3 w – – 0 60
