Greetings Chess Players. My name is Chris Torres and this is my daily chess musing for January 5, 2021.
Today’s chess musing comes to us via my friend and notable chess author, Cyrus Lakdawala who shared this chess puzzle on his Facebook page. One never knows when inspiration will appear and as soon as I saw this chess composition by A. Stubbs I was bedazzled. Since there are so few pieces on the board, I will give you one minute to attempt to find the correct answer. And now without further ado, I present a beautiful little puzzle from 1926 and ask, “How can white force mate?” Enjoy…
Thanks again to International Master Cyrus Lakdawala for sharing such a wonderful puzzle. If your looking to pick up a new chess book, I recommend checking out Capablanca Move by Move by Cyrus Lakdawala which is an inspiring book about the third world chess champion, Jose Raul Capablanca.
