White to play. This position is from Costachi-Toma, Calimanesti 2017. Can you spot White’s winning coup? Answers to me at The Spectator by Tuesday 25 April or via email to victoria@spectator.co.uk. There is a prize of £20 for the first correct answer out of a hat. Please include a postal address and allow six weeks for prize delivery.

Last week’s solution The question should have said that White had two winning tries.
1 Qf5 is a good one but 1 Rb8+ wins.
Last week’s winner Revd Paul Greenland,
Chelmsford, Essex
