Daily Chess Puzzle

November 4, 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 Gawain C B - Martirosyan Haik M. (27...Kd4)
