Daily Chess Puzzle IOM

October 17, 2019

Today’s problem is from the current Chess.com 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

Ganguly Surya Shekhar - Saduakassova Dinara (30...Kh8)

 

Ganguly v Saduakassova, Douglas, Isle of Man. 11 October 2019

Solution

1 Qg6! (though 1 R1d4 also wins) with the idea of after a random move (e.g. 1…a4) 2 R1d4! cd 3 Bf5: the point of Bh3 in yesterday’s posting.

Ganguly Surya Shekhar - Saduakassova Dinara (33.Bf5)

 

 

FEN

1r1r3k/1b1Pq1p1/1p1R1p1B/p1p1p3/3nP1QP/6PB/PP3P2/3R2K1 w – – 0 31
