Careful Calculation

The solution to last Monday’s problem is that White can keep a winning advantage with 1. Re1! I missed that move and resigned instead.

This week’s problem shows that careful calculation is needed in even simple positions.

White has to play and draw. It is not difficult, but you have to get the right move.

How does White draw?

About Steven Carr

I am 57 years old, and I am trying to improve my standard of play. From 1998 to 2012, I had a break from chess, playing very few games in that period. I now play more competitive chess and I currently have a English grading of 184. I hope to get a grading of over 200 one day. I normally play in the Merseyside League and play Board 1 for Wallasey.
