Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 131

Black to play and win

 

 

A Pedro v G Michelakis 1995

 

Solution

With white's queen so offside, and pieces in a tangle, black is clearly better after 1…f5, but 1…g4! is clearly more forcing, and, depending on how white reacts, black gets dominant central pieces.

 

2 Ng4 Rd5 3 Bd5 Bd5 is one typical outcome, when black dominates.
