Daily Chess Puzzle

November 19, 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

Milov Leonid - Gelfand Boris (63...Kxb4)


Milov v Gelfand, Kirovabad 1 1984


1…Kc4 (1…Kb3 also wins, but Kc4 is simpler) 2 Ke4 g2 3 Bh2 b4 4 Kf3 b3 and one of the pawns queens.

Milov Leonid - Gelfand Boris (69...b3)


8/8/8/1p2B1p1/1k2n3/5KpP/8/8 w – – 0 64
