Daily Chess Puzzle

March 1, 2020

Today’s problem was seen on Twitter.

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

Raja Harshit - Adhiban Baskaran (28.Kf3)


Raja v Adhiban, Ahmedabad, 10/2/2020


1..Bf2+ and after 2 Kf2[] Qg3+ 3 Ke2 Qe3+ the Bd3 falls:

Raja Harshit - Adhiban Baskaran (31...Qxd3)

Black’s f pawn is too fast, costing White his N; Black by a precise series of moves was then able to mate White (or could have picked up the Ra4.


A fine game.



6q1/2p1kp2/pb1p1p1p/1P1P4/4Pp2/2PB1K1P/1P1N1P2/R7 b – – 0 28
