Written by Michael McDowell   

Mark Adabashev

HM, Western Morning News, 1934

Mate in 2

A straightforward two-mover this time. Adabashev (1910-53) was one of the finest composers of the Soviet era. Note the precise strategic match between the pairs of variations.

The solution will appear here on Friday 21st July 2017.
