Black to play. This is a variation from Svidler-Nepomniatchi, Novgorod 2013. Svidler avoided this position, despite the fact that White appears to be a piece up for very little. What possible danger had he foreseen? Answers to me at The Spectator by Tuesday 29 October or via email to victoria@spectator.co.uk or by fax on 020 7681 3773. The winner will be the first correct answer out of a hat, and each week I shall be offering a prize of £20. Please include a postal address and allow six weeks for prize delivery.
 
Last week’s solution 1 Ng4
Last week’s winner Dave Forbes, Ellon, Aberdeenshire

You might disagree with half of it, but you’ll enjoy reading all of it. Try your first 10 weeks for just $10
