Consolidating a won game

The solution to last Monday’s problem is that White wins most cleanly with 1. Nc2!. The idea is that Rxa2 is met by 2. Qd8+ Qxd8 3. Rxd8+ Kg7 4. Na3

In this week’s problem, White has to find the cleanest method of establishing a won game.

At present, he has two pieces for a Rook, but his Knight is pinned and the Black Rook is active on the seventh rank.

How should White consolidate?

About Steven Carr

I am 57 years old, and I am trying to improve my standard of play. From 1998 to 2012, I had a break from chess, playing very few games in that period. I now play more competitive chess and I currently have a English grading of 184. I hope to get a grading of over 200 one day. I normally play in the Merseyside League and play Board 1 for Wallasey.
