Friday chess puzzle 16
This week's Friday chess puzzle is from Van Scheltinga vs Stahlberg, Amsterdam 1950.
White has just played Bd5, apparently catching Black's knight on e6 in a pair of deadly pins.
Unfortunately for Van Scheltinga, appearances can be deceptive.
Can you see how Stahlberg, one of the strongest players in the world at the time, turned the tables, and forced a win for Black from this position?
