Daily Chess Puzzle

November 7, 2019

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

Adams v Andreikin, European Team Championships, Batumi, Georgia, 1st November 2019

Solution

A wonderful victory by Mickey Adams in this match whcih England drew 2-2 with Russia. The game was vintage Mickey, piece play to perfection, nurturing to victory the smallest of edges.
