  Sally Simpson: Nice combination here in a position Alekhine players have nightmare about.

White to play his 11th move..

He had to see his 15th move before embarking on the Knight sac. Not too easy but well within the bounds of your average player if they keep looking past the f5 and Rf6 (hitting the g6 Bishop) defence.

Remember this one, it's a Thursday/Friday POTD.
