The hardest chess puzzler was said to have circulated In the S.W.I.F.T Chess Tournament in Brussels back in 1987 when Jim Plaskett introduced it to the GMs there. Timman was there, Garry Kasparov was there, Karpov was there but also Nigel Short, Hubner, Winants, Eugenio Torre, Ben Larsen, Viktor Korchnoi and also in this elite group, the one and only Mikhail Tal. But the entire group, only ONE GM managed to solve it but who was it in the end? Can you do better than the players who tried to solve this chess puzzle and failed?

how about knight e5 move? can someone tell me whats the variation that lead to losing white?
Michael tal who els
The engine on my ipad was able to solve it.
very refreshing puzzle, love it
Tal took a peek of the position and solve it after a walk in the park
Ljubojevic was like gg ez
Amazing puzzle. Thanks for the video.
I have solved it before by myself. But then I knew that it was a win for white. Well, actually this is the second part of the puzzle. There is a first part.
For those who asked for those lines we didn't look at, I am bringing out part 2 of this clip to cover them
This puzzle demonstrates clearly the beauty of chess and also the weakness(s) of any engine considered up till now to be the best engine!!!
Stunning sequences of moves
I love it!
the Queen's english please
Tal would solve this by sacrificing the opponents' king
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD I SOLVED IT
Just Tal things
After c4b5 black has an aditional move if he does d8c6.
I actually solved this really quickly like a minute of thinking
Tal is a fuckn genius of chess. He had lots of issues with his health, but still managed to become a champion. He even began playing chess at the age when modern kids became grossmeisters. Also he needed least time to become a champion-only 10 years after he started playing chess. Correct me if i’m wrong
i think you should promote to a knight
Only Tal Can Solve This
Your not a GM
Mine elo is above 5000
0:30 that's one derpy-looking horse 🙂
Idk if I’m a genius.. I solved it in the first minute
It would be helpful if you state plainly, have written at the bottom of the puzzle, what is the exact challenge. It appears to be, "White to play and win." Is that correct?
I wonder if Alpha Zero could solve this puzzle or not
Tal is the Best. Amazing 😊😊👍

stockfish 10 gives white +7.2 after Kh5 check
7 30 ne4
I solved it in 1.5 hours
After the white pawn promoted to Queen, black can play Kg4 instead of Nf7.. The solution is juz flawed..
