Daily Chess Puzzle

March 28, 2020

Today’s problem is from the Candidates tournament.

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

Nepomniachtchi v Ding FIDE Candidates Tournament, Yekaterinburg, 23/3/2020


Black played 1…Rc5 and soon lost, but 1…Rb6! 2 Rb6 Qe2! is equal. I’ll look at why tomorrow.
