Chess Puzzle: February

As a thank you to Martin Burrows for organizing the club championship, this month's puzzle shows his loss to Brandon Clarke in the County Championships last summer. :-)

[Martin Burrows (181) - Brandon Clarke (122) ]. Black to play and win.

12-year-old Brandon Clarke became the youngest Leicestershire Champion in history when he defeated reigning champion Martin with the black pieces with a spectacular combination from the above position. Can you see it? (hard).

Have fun!
