As it was the last night of the year, we had a bit of fun with a chess puzzle on the demo board. White is winning but for that pesky black pawn on d2! It does not look good for white, but the puzzle is;
White to move and get winning position (Clue: about 6 moves later). Most players got so far, but one player, Colm Hawkins (1350) found the right finish! Can you?
White to move…
Well that ends another very successful year at Castlehill Chess Club Dundee. We will hopefully look forward to even more in 2020!
