Hi everyone,

Here's a position from a game played by World Women's Chess Champion Hou Yifan against Marie Sebag at the Hangzhou women's chess tournament currently on in China. Can you figure out the simple winning move? You can always run the flashplayer to cross-check your answer. You can also access the official tournament website at this link. Two rounds have been played in the event. We have Yifan, Wenjun and Xue with 1.5 points each, Kosintseva sisters, Zatonskih and Harika are at 1.0 points each, Sebag, Dzagnidze and Chen have 0.5 points each.

White to play and win
