Black to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

Since the kids are out of school, I thought I would post some tactical alertness positions I use in my teaching for the next couple of weeks. Have fun! Are you as smart as your grammar school chess playing kid? In this position Black is trying to save himself from loss.

1...Bg5+ 2.Kxg5 Ne4+ 3.Kf5 Nxd6+ 4.Ke5 Nxc4+ 5.Kd5 Ne3+ 6.Kxc5 Kh6 and the pawns go with a draw the result.
