Daily Chess Puzzle

June 16, 2019

Today’s problem was recently seen posted on Twitter by Olimpiu G Urcan (Twitter handle @olimpiuurcan


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


unknow composition



I’ll respect Olimpiu, and not give the solution. All I will say is that I got it wrong, and the solution is beautiful and deep.


4q3/8/1p6/3R4/p7/k7/P1PB4/K7 b – – 0 0
