Daily Chess Puzzle

October 2, 2019

Today’s problem is from the C.H.O’D. Alexander’s 1973 book”The Penguin Book of Chess Positions”, a book I devoured (and loved) as a child.

I thought I would use it for more of my daily training.


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

Kestler Hans Guenther - Suess Alois (24.Rxc6)

Kestler v Suess, Voelklinger 11/5/1970



1…Qd2! and White resigned, since 2 Rc1 Re1 0-1.
