Daily Chess Puzzle IOM

October 20, 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

Wojtaszek Radoslaw - Tari Aryan (39...Qxf5) (1)


Wojtaszek v Tari, Douglas, Isle of Man. 11 October 2019


1 Be4! overloading the Qf5

1…Rc8 (if 1…Qf6 2 Kh1; and with the king safe, the Pd5 can push, though the game still needs to be won).

2 Qe7! 1-0

Wojtaszek Radoslaw - Tari Aryan (41.Qe7)



5r1k/1p5p/p7/P1QPpq2/5b2/5B1P/6P1/1R4K1 w – – 0 40
