Black to move, Paravyan vs McShane, Isle of Man 2019. Here I intended 49…Bxd1. What had Paravyan planned after that move? Answers should be sent to ‘Chess’ at The Spectator by Tuesday 11 February 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…Rf3+! 2 Kxe4 Rxf7! wins. But not 1…Rxf7 2 Rxf7 b1=Q 3 Rc7+ Kb3 4 Rb7+, nor 1…Rf1 2 Rc7+
