Chess Puzzle of the Week (189)

Shoosmith – Ward
City of London CC Championship 1906
Black to play

Continuing, and perhaps concluding, my series of puzzles taken from the games of William Ward, one of the strongest English players in the early 20th century, and (briefly, it seems) a member of Richmond Chess Club, do tell me how you’d continue with Black in this position.

If you think you’ve found the correct answer, feel free to get in touch, but please don’t post your solution in public.

Solving tactical puzzles of this nature on a regular basis is one of the best ways to improve your chess.
