SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
From the world team championship (female) taking place right now. Position after 28 moves. White has out-manoeuvred her opponent and has a winning position. Anna played 29.Ra7 and won in another 10 moves. INSTEAD, White has a shot here. Do you see it?

(One of the nicest combinations I have seen this year!)
