Puzzle #274 solution:
Enevoldsen – Andersen, DEN 1937. There was no 100% good solution. This is how it should have looked like:
a) Black is up a pawn. Both sides have castled and while the white King is quite safe, the black one is trying to hide behind a stubborn defence. All white pieces are pretty much ready for a final assault, pointing toward the black King; meantime black has at least 3 pieces not helping with the defence (Bb7, Rc8 and Qe8). The first move is crucial as it needs to destroy the base on the defensive pawn chain g7-h6: the g7-pawn.
