Tactics Wednesday

On Monday the British Championship started, which is always usually good for some tactics during the games. Yesterdays puzzle came from the British Championship in the year I was born, 1966.

Black to play was Sir Stuart Milner Barry who played the elegant 1..Bc2 attacking a rook, but more importantly, trapping white's queen. So white doesn't have time to move the the rook away, or black will simply play 2..Nb6.

Black to play and win
