Chess Puzzle of the week (56)


This position arose in the game R James – RS Walker (Richmond B v Acton 1977). I could have won by playing 1. Rxf5 gxf5 2. Bxf7+ Kxf7 3. Qh5+, but instead I played Bc5 and the game was drawn a few moves later (not sure offhand whether by agreement or adjudication).



This week another position from one of my old games.


It’s Black’s move: how should the game continue? You’ll need to provide at least three variations for full marks.
