Black to play. This position is from Arnason-Keene, London 1981. This position also arose from a Modern Defence. How did Black finish off? Answers to me at The Spectator by Tuesday 30 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 Ncxd5 or 1 Nfxd5 both work and either answer is correct
Last week’s winner David Lamb, Sheffield
