Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Here is a nice chess puzzle for a swell Thursday. It's very simple actually. But just to check if you're alert! Enjoy.

Vladislav Vorotnikov-Igor Ivanov, Vilnius, 1977
In the given position White played Bxh7 picking up a free pawn!
But Black had other things in mind. What did Black play and win after Bh7?
