Daily Chess Puzzle

December 8, 2019

Today’s problem is from an old edition of Chess Magazine. I don’t know which one, because, as is my habit, from time to time I photocopy a page to solve on walks or on trains etc; and my copy doesn’t show the magazine date.

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

Vachier Lagrave Maxime - Kasparov Garry (41.g4 )

 

MVL v Garry Kasparov, Clichy Blitz 17/9/2011

Solution

In this blitz game, Garry missed 1…h4! and White’s artack is over.

Vachier Lagrave Maxime - Kasparov Garry (41...h4!)
