Friday chess puzzle 11
Our latest Friday puzzle is a tough one (I think!). It's a typical Sicilian position, with castling on opposite wings, from Beni vs. Schwarzbach, Vienna 1969.
White sacrificed a rook for a strong attack, but it appears that it has come to an end, and that Black will consolidate and emerge the winner, e.g. 1 Bxg7 Qxg7; 2 Rxg7+ Kxg7 is good for Black.
However, White has a beautiful way to win from this position, can you find it?
Answers to roger AT 21 thoughts DOT com. I'll publish the solution on Wednesday.
(Today's puzzle is taken from "Tactics in the Sicilian" by Gennady Nesis)
