Re(5): Listener No. 4377: Russian Roulette by Rasputin

There were some difficult clues here - we had to wait for the solution to be published before finding out how the wordplay of NOSE UP worked.

The instructions on how to arrive at the endgame were certainly a novel idea, and when we got to ALEKH, we thought we must have got something wrong, but luckily carried on.

Not being chess experts, we had never heard of Alekhine's gun, but Wiki is a great tool! The Wiki entry does not show the final board, so we had to complete the game from the given moves to get there.

This was a great puzzle, so thanks to the Rasputin team!
