Daily Chess Puzzle

December 23, 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.

 

Black to play, played 1…Bb5; what followed?

Carlsen Magnus - Ghaem Maghami Ehsan (24.fxg3)

 

Carlsen v Ghaem Maghami, Baku Olympiad 2016

Solution

1…Bb5 2 Rf7+! and next 3 Nd6+ +-

Carlsen Magnus - Ghaem Maghami Ehsan (26.Nd6+)

FEN

2r3r1/pp2kpp1/2b1p2p/8/1NN3P1/4P1P1/P5P1/2R2RK1 b – – 0 24
