Daily Chess Puzzle

July 17, 2019

Today’s problem is from the January 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.


White to play: what happens after 2 Kh3 (instead of 2 Bh3, as in the game)?



Alan Ludgate v John Littlewood, Blackpool 1979


2 Kh3 Qh6!!
