Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 86


Black to play and win

Black played 1…Bc5, but missed a better move.

J Van den Berg v J Mendel 1984

A nice puzzle.

It took me a while to see the cute little move 1…Qc7! which gets out of the pin on the d file, whilst still protecting the Pc6 and Be7 and so threatening 2…Bc8! trapping the queen.
