Cordingley puzzle 39

Black to play and win

 

 

Solution

 

The first move, 1…Ra3, is fairly obvious, and I suspect in practice most players would find it. White has a number of responses, and I wouldn't be able to calculate them all, but in my analysis I got to the key position , a couple of moves later. I took this as a stepping stone point, where I could more or less end my analysis. Whether I would have dared to play the winning move, 3…d3!, which I saw, or whether I would have chickened out and played the move actually played in the game, I don't know. This would have been better as a two part problem.
