Daily Chess Puzzle

November 14, 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.

 

Black to play

Adams Michael - Gelfand Boris (19.Nd2)

 

Adams v Gelfand, Arnhem 29/12/1988

Solution

1…Nb2! and if 2 Kb2 Ba3+!; White instead played 2 Bd3 and Black had won an important pawn, weakening White’s king’s protection.

Adams Michael - Gelfand Boris (20...Ba3+)

FEN

r3k2r/2qnbpp1/7p/pp1Pp3/2n3PP/4B3/PPPN1Q2/1K1R1B1R b kq – 0 19
