Daily Chess Puzzle

November 22, 2019

Today’s problem is from an old 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 - Movsesian Sergei (89...g3)

Boris Gelfand v S Movsesian, Batumi 3/12/19

Solution

1 Bd5! and it is a draw; 1…Kg4 2 Bc6 Kh4 3 Bd7 and the Pg3 falls.

Gelfand Boris - Movsesian Sergei (92.Bd7)

I got null points on this: but Boris found it, of course!

 

FEN

8/5Bn1/8/7p/5k1P/6p1/6K1/8 w – – 0 90
