Daily Chess Puzzle

July 13, 2019

Today’s problem is from the April 1979 Chess magazine. I have hundreds (many hundreds) of magazines on my book shelves, and I thought I would dip into them; and thought I would start with going forty years back.


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

Pribyl Josef - Peev Peicho Chonev (19.Qc3)

Pribyl v Peev, Decin 9th June 1978


1…Ba6+ 2 Ke1 Qg5 0-1

Pribyl Josef - Peev Peicho Chonev (20...Qxg5)

If 3 Ba8 then 3…Qg1+ and mates.


r1b1k1r1/3n1p1p/1p1Ppq1b/p5N1/3P4/2Q5/PPP2NBP/R4K1R b q – 0 19
