Sunday chess puzzle time

Chess news and chess trivia blog (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2010

Hello Everyone,

It's time for a nice puzzle. Okay, no mate-in-three today. This one should get you thinking a bit. White to play and win in the position. You can run the solution in the flashplayer after some thinking time of at least four minutes. Do explore all the combinations and any checkmating patterns that you can find.

It's a simple puzzle. Just be a little alert to the possibilities! Enjoy.

Gutman-Kalinchev, Boblingen, 1997
