Daily Chess Puzzle

October 26, 2019

Today’s problem is from the current European Team Championships.

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



Jones G v Carlsson, PEuropean Team Championships, Batumi, Georgia, October 2019


1 Bh6! with the idea that if 1…gh, 2 de wins.


If Black plays 2…fe, then 3 Rd7 winning the exchange, but also with an overwhelming attack.
