The Monday Chess Puzzle #5

The Monday Chess Puzzle #5

Hello everyone, for today’s post, the subject will be the fifth installment of my video series “The Monday Chess Puzzle.” The puzzle I used for this week’s edition was a position taken from a game played in the 1946 Groningen chess tournament held in the Netherlands. For more information on the Groningen tournament, click HERE to view chessgames.com’s page on the subject.

The game itself was played in round 18 between Ossip Bernstein and Alexander Kotov. If you want to see the entire game, click HERE. Just as last week’s puzzle, this one can be found at chess.com’s Tactics Trainer. The puzzle is for white to move and win. I find it a very instructive puzzle because of the combination used to win. As usual, you can find my new video at the end of this post along with a link to the puzzle if you want to solve it on your own. Stay tuned for next week’s edition of The Monday Chess Puzzle!
