Daily Chess Puzzle

December 21, 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

Salem AR Saleh - Fedoseev Vladimir1 (20...Rh8)

Salem v Fedoseev, Abu Dhabi 27/8/2016

 

Solution

1 Bf7! Rf7[] 2 fe

Salem AR Saleh - Fedoseev Vladimir1 (22.fxe6)

and Black’s forces are too uncoordinated to put up a fight.

FEN

2k4r/pb1n1pr1/1q2p2b/1p1pPPpB/2pP2Q1/6B1/PPN3P1/R4RK1 w – – 0 21
