Daily Chess Puzzle

May 15, 2019

Today’s problem was seen in a recent Sunday Times column; it took me a few moments to solve, and I thought it was pretty and worth sharing.


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

1…Bc4! and White’s defences are overrun: If 2 Bc4, ef+ wins the exchange.
