White to play. This position is a variation from Carlsen-Anand, Monaco 2011. White is a piece down here but has a powerful move which destroys the black position. Can you see it?  Answers to me at The Spectator by Tuesday 5 November 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 … Nh5
Last week’s winner Nick Cook, Castletown, Isle of Man
