Black to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

White’s king is exposed. What is the best way for Black to take advantage of this?


Solution:

The key to solving this problem is to recognize that Nb3 by Black would be mate if it weren’t for the White queen defending b3. In the game Vaganian-Planinc, Hastings, 1974-75, Black solved this problem with 1…Qc7+ and White either loses his queen or gets mated.
