Daily Chess Puzzle

December 11, 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

Gashimov Vugar - Nielsen Peter Heine (32...Kh8)

 

Gashimov v Nielsen, Khanty-Mansiysk 8/9/2011

Solution

1 Ng7! Kg7[] 2 Qh6+ Kg8 [] 3 gf

Gashimov Vugar - Nielsen Peter Heine (35.gxf6)

and Black is helpless. 3…Rf7[] is forced to defend g7, but this blocks the Be8’s sight of g6, s 4 Rf5, when Rg5+ and Rg7 follows.

Gashimov Vugar - Nielsen Peter Heine (38.Rg7)

FEN

4br1k/2p3pp/p3rp2/4qNP1/2PpP2Q/3P1R2/P5P1/5RK1 w – – 0 33
