Daily Chess Puzzle

November 16, 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 - Ivanchuk Vassily (27...dxe5)

 

Gelfand v Ivanchuk, Sochi 11/8/2008

Solution

1 Nh6+!

Gelfand Boris - Ivanchuk Vassily (28.Nxh6+!)

1…gh 2 Qe5: a “slow” move, with a double attack.

Gelfand Boris - Ivanchuk Vassily (29.Qxe5)

and wins: to be looked after further tomorrow.

FEN

r1b2bk1/2R3p1/pp3r1p/3ppN1Q/1P2P3/6P1/7P/6K1 w – – 0 28
