Daily Chess Puzzle

July 20, 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

Blewett v Morris, Southend Easter 1979

Solution

1…d5, and the threat of 2…Bc5, wins a piece. A rest day.
