Chess Puzzle of the Week (50)


Last week I left you with this endgame study composed by Pal Benko.

It solves like this: 1. a4! Kxb2 2. Ra3! Kxa3 3. axb5 a4 4. b6 and White wins.




Continuing our Benko theme, how did our hero finish his opponent off in this position (Benko-Jeney Hungarian Championship Budapest 1950)? It’s White to play.
