Listener No. 4377: Russian Roulette by Rasputin

I thought that this was a wonderful puzzle and one of the best from last year. I would normal have a bit of a grumble about the number of clashes and unches in short words, but in this particular puzzle they formed a neat part of the endgame in that we could use the chess pieces as checks. I hadn’t come across Alekhine’s gun before and enjoyed reading about the position. Thanks very much, Rasputin, I very much look forward to your next.

I understand that Artix makes up a third of Rasputin and he already has one of my favourites from last year and was involved in one the best from the Magpie last year too, so quite a feat.
