White to play. This position is a variation from Mamedov-Carlsen, World Blitz 2014. Here White played 1 hxg5 and Carlsen went on to win when White overlooked a tactic on the kingside. This wasn’t the only tactic White overlooked as he missed something  here too. What should he have played? Answers to me at The Spectator by Tuesday 1 July or via email to victoria@spectator.co.uk or by fax on 020 7681 3773. The winner will be the first correct answer out of a hat, and each week I shall be offering a prize of £20. Please include a postal address.
 
Last week’s solution 1 … Rxe3
Last week’s winner Richard Hazell, S. Yorks
