Let’s begin a chess-full week with this nice chess study by T Gorghiyev, 1929. White to play and win. Remember if Black manages to exchange a piece, he would be able to hold draw. What White needs to do is pick up at least one piece for free and force a win. Can you figure it out? Take your time. Chess requires patience and you will need it today :) Hint: The first move pretty much forces it all!!!
