Welcome back, and we’re straight down to business again.
Last week’s puzzle generated a load of interest- quite a thronker, it’s fair to say. But it’s big Jim “loco” Stevenson who takes the plaudits this time, with the following sequence:
- … Rf1+!
- Rxf1, Rxd1+
- Kxd1, Kxf1 – and the pawn ending is won for black, as he maintains the opposition.
The actual game (Bernstein–Dake, US Ch. 1936) went: Rxd1, Kxd1, Rxf5, gxf5, f6, Ke2… ending drawn.
