Daily Chess Puzzle IOM

October 14, 2019

Today’s problem is from the current Grand Swiss in Douglas, Isle of Man.


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
