Daily Chess Puzzle

November 24, 2019

Today’s problem is a study seen on Twitter.

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.

Olimpiu G Urcan is always interesting to follow on Twitter, where his handle is @olimpiuurcan.

Most of his studies are too hard for me to solve quickly: and are in my pile to “solve some time” -a pile which grows, and never gets smaller.

This one was easier, as he said, and also is nice to solve.
