Daily Chess Puzzle IOM

October 18, 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 (32...cxd4)

 

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

Solution

A nice calculation exercise.

1 Qh6+ Qh7 2 Qf6+ Qg7 3 Qf5!

Ganguly Surya Shekhar - Saduakassova Dinara (35.Qf5)

Key: a little move, changing the attack to the white squares.

3…d3 4 Qh5+ Kg8 5 Rg6 1-0: if necessary, Be6+ follows.

 

FEN

1r1r3k/1b1Pq3/1p1R1pQp/p3p3/3pP2P/6PB/PP3P2/6K1 w – – 0 33
