It’s been a while – once again – but we’re back for another installment.
Our previous puzzle back in June was an interesting one. With Black to move, there doesn’t appear to be anything decisive…. Dig a little deeper though, and you can see a neat combination that allows Black to pickup the White Knight hanging on d5.
Paul takes the plaudits for this one, with Black to move 1… Nxf3, 2.exf3 Bg2, [threatening to take the White Rook] 3.Rg1 Bxf3+ [checking White, and allowing the Bishop to take the Knight for free on the next move]. Tidy.
Up next is this beauty – White’s move, with spaghetti all over the board. Solutions in the comments as usual please:
