Chess Puzzle of the Week (195)

Here’s another position from the London 1922 tournament.

This is Alekhine – Maroczy, played on 17 August 1922. Black, with a queen and a rook both hanging, is about to play his 30th move.

How would you assess the position? What would you play here? Are you just losing material? Should you look for a way to force a draw? Or can you achieve a winning position against the World Champion?

Do let me know what you think. Better still, come along to the Adelaide on Tuesday and show me.
