White to play. This is from Kramnik-Adams, Shamkir 2017. How did Kramnik complete his rout of the black position? Answers to me at The Spectator by Tuesday 16 May 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 1 Rxf7 (1 … Kxf7 2 Qxc7+ Kf6 3 Qxc6 is overwhelming)
Last week’s winner Martin Dlouhý, Czech Republic
