Here is a rather simple chess riddle for you, taken -as I’ve taken a habit of doing- from a blitz game I played a minute ago on the Internet Chess Club. Below I give you all the moves of the game leading to the position:
1.e4 Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.Nc3 Nxc3 4.dxc3 d6 5.exd6 exd6 6.Be3 Be7 7.Qd2 0-0 8.0-0-0 a5 9.Nf3 a4 10.a3 Nc6 11.Bc4 Be6 12.Bxe6 fxe6 13.Nd4 Nxd4 14.cxd4 d5 15.Bf4 c5 16.Kb1 Qb6 17.Be5 c4 18.Ka2 Ra5 19.f3 Rb5 20.Qc3 Rc8 21.h4?
I am black. Can you guess the move I played and the possible followup ? I will give the remainder of the game tomorrow.
(A disclaimer: the moves of the game listed above are not to be taken too seriously: as I said this was a blitz game played on the internet, and I am sure there are imprecise moves from both sides leading to the diagrammed position…)
