It was back in January that we presented our last puzzle. As is the way, Charlie was in there first, but he didn’t get the right solution this time.
Plaudits go to Jon S, with the following line:
1…Bxe3! (Bxc3??, Nxd5 Kxd5, gxh4= as black has the wrong bishop)
2. Kxe3, g4!
3. gxh4, gxh3 (or hxg4, h3) and in both cases the pawn promotes.
