Puzzle of the Week #025

A delectable puzzle for us last time, courtesy of Oxford student Hou Yifan vs. Jackson, Isle of Man 2016.

Our very own Mr Dipenderble was straight in there with the correct solution, so congratulations to him!

To this week’s puzzle, and it is a tough cookie.

White to move, answers in the comments please…
