Daily Chess Puzzle

July 19, 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.




Rawcliffe v Gold, Southend Easter 1979


1..Rg1+ and after the exchanges on g1, Be3+ skewers the king and Ra7.
