White to play. This position is from Michalik-Jirasek, Prague 2019. The game is only just out of the opening but White already has a crushing tactical blow. Can you see it? Answers to me at The Spectator by Tuesday 2 July 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.
