White to play. This is a variation from Williams-Howell, British Championship, Warwick 2015. Howell won this game but the puzzle shows what might have happened if he had gone wrong. How can White regain his material to achieve a winning position? Answers to me at The Spectator by Tuesday 11 August or via email to victoria@spectator.co.uk. The winner will be the first correct answer out of a hat, and each week there is a prize of £20. Please include a postal address.

Last week’s solution 1 Qh8+

Last week’s winner Ted Ditchburn, Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear
