This weeks puzzle:

This weeks puzzle comes from an excellent game that Alan Young played in the Northumberland league game this February. Alan playing white has a nice position. His heavy pieces control the centre. Blacks pieces are not only passive but also his king is weak and there’s a pawn weakness on d6. Find the winning move that sealed the win for white in a few moves.

Well done Alan!
