Happy Friday – we’re back once again with another Puzzle just in time for the weekend.
Last week’s was a reasonably straightforward mating puzzle, albeit not necessarily entirely intuitive.
Panos was the first to respond with the correct answer – effectively a Queen sacrifice to force the mating sequence. Well done Panos!
This week sees us celebrating the outbreak of mad romanticism in the London 4 team last week, with a game from the archives featuring Capt. Evans.
Evans-McDonnell, London, 1829. Not the first recorded game with the Evans Gambit, but a win by the inventor.
White to move, answers in the comments please!
