Thal Abergel v Oliver Jack­son, Isle of Man . Manch­ester vet­eran Jack­son, the fall guy in yes­ter­day's puz­zle, is again the vic­tim of an instant knock-out to­day. Black is two pawns down, but at first sight his po­si­tion is not bad. The black army is ac­tively placed, and if he can cas­tle, bring­ing his sec­ond rook into ac­tion, White's c1 king would come un­der pressure. More­over, White (to play) can­not make the ob­vi­ous cap­ture 1 Bxb be­cause of his ex­posed e queen. But all Jack­son's neat the­o­ret­i­cal dreams collapsed when White's next turn forced him to re­sign. Can you find White's move which ended the game?
