Daily Chess Puzzle

May 28, 2019

Yesterday I recounted a story about meeting Andre Lilienthal and I posed the question “what was his most famous move”?

White to play

Lilienthal Andor - Capablanca Jose Raul (19...Qxe4 )

Lilienthal v Capablanca. Hastings 1 January 1935

 

Solution

1 ef!

Lilienthal Andor - Capablanca Jose Raul (20.exf6!+-)

Fischer’s greeting to Lilienthal: “Pawn e5 takes f6”

Capture

The game is also annotated in the book I have of his games.
