Daily Chess Puzzle

March 2, 2020

Today’s problem is from a recent club match

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.

Mick Carroll v Mike Taylor, Great Lever v Stockport 27/2/2019

Solution

Acting captain Mike was the last game to play, and, kibitzing, I was pleased Mike found 1 Rd5+! Ke2[] 2 Rd2+! the point being 2…Kd2[] 3 Ne4+ and 5 Ng3.

With this win, Stockport won a very hard fought match.
