White to play. Dahl-Kolbus; Isle of Man, 2019. In this game between two Manx players, White had promoted a pawn earlier but finishing off the game is not easy. Here, Dahl found an elegant winning move. Can you do as well? Answers to ‘Chess’ at The Spectator by Tuesday 5 November or via email to victoria@spectator.co.uk. There is a prize of £20 for the winner. Please include a postal address and allow six weeks for prize delivery.
 
Last week’s solution  Be6+ (e.g. 24 Kd6 Rd8+ 25 Kc7 Rf7+ 26 Kxc6 Rc8+ wins the queen)
Last week’s winner Roy Bland, Penzancea
