Black to Play

Black to Play

White’s king is exposed. What is the best way for Black to take advantage of this?

Solution:

The key to solving this problem is to recognize that Nb3 by Black would be mate if it weren’t for the White queen defending b3. In the game Vaganian-Planinc, Hastings, 1974-75, Black solved this problem with 1…Qc7+ and White either loses his queen or gets mated.
