David Eg­gle­ston v Chris Ward, Bri­tish rapid­play, Hal­i­fax 2006. This con­test be­tween a ta­lented young Ge­ordie and an ex­pe­ri­enced grand­mas­ter from Tun­bridge Wells was keenly fought as both play­ers strove for a win. The kings are un­der fire, and here White (to move) plans the crush­ing h6 and Qg7 mate. Black’s Ra1 mate threat is even more im­me­di­ate, so White needs first to en­sure safety for his king. Eg­gle­ston's first turn is ob­vi­ous, and the en­su­ing play is also forced. Puz­zle: what should be the re­sult?
