Daily Chess Puzzle

November 13, 2019

Today’s problem is from an old edition of the British Chess Magazine

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

Gelfand Boris - Piket Jeroen (31...Ne7)

 

Gelfand v Piket, Amber Blindfold Rapidplay 21/3/1999 Monte Carlo

Solution

1 Ne6+! examine all biffs fe[] 2 Rd7! and wins.

Gelfand Boris - Piket Jeroen (33.Rxd7)
