Daily Chess Puzzle

January 17, 2020

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

Horton Jamie A - Reed John (23...Kh7)


J Horton v J Reed, Chester 20/1/2013


1 Ng5+ hg 2 Qh5+ gh 3 e5+

Horton Jamie A - Reed John (26.e5+)

and White is winning.
