Sometimes in chess, good moves are difficult to see but when you realise that the move is there, everything becomes obvious. In this game, the very experienced Scottish player, Alan Grant (as White) was up against GM Aleksander Wohl. The game was played at the Hastings Chess Congress at the start of 2011 in Round 8. The game seemed on the face of it fairly equal until Black uncorked a move that instantly won the game. What was Black’s move?

White to move and mate next move. I first saw this problem years ago in a pocket book, ‘Test Your Chess’ published in the United States in 1978 by Gerald Abrahams. It is a tricky little problem but deceptively simple.
