Chess Puzzle of the Week (33)


Last week I asked you how this position arose after Black’s 4th move.

The answer: 1. e4 Nh6 2. Ba6 Nf5 3. exf5 Nxa6 4. f6 Nb8.

Thanks to all who commented on social media and congratulations to those of you who found the correct answer



This picturesque position was reached in Tari-Sadzikowski (Gibraltar 2019). It’s Black’s move: can you improve on the game continuation? (Source: Maxim Notkin’s tactics column in New in Chess 2019#3)
