  gawain: This game was selected as a puzzle by Leonard Barden for his Guardian chess column 28 October 2006.

After White's 42nd move Black has the white knight securely pinned. But how is he going to win it? A nice little plan!

(By the way I happen to be "Gawain" but I am not Gawain Jones.)

Jul-29-07  wouldpusher: After 45. ♖b4 Jones just needs to move his ♗ around d7 and e8, and then it's zugzwang for White.

This should have been entitled "UP FOR ANTE"!

Jul-29-07  wouldpusher: <apple pi> Whoops. Thanks for pointing that out. Funny I overlooked an obvious pawn move.

Jul-29-07  wouldpusher: <Elxiddicus> Double blunder for me today. I think I should take a break from the PC and get some rest.
