An incredible game, Naiditsch-Esen, Rejkyavik, 2015, ended with a great combination based on an old theme.


Solution:

1.Nd8+ Nxd5 [The old Lucena theme underlying all this was: 1...Kh8 2.Nf7+ (Although one move faster is: 2.Rxe8+ Bxe8 3.Rxe8+ Bf8 4.Bf6#) 2...Kg8 3.Nh6+ Kh8 4.Qg8+ Rxg8 5.Nf7#] 2.Rxe8+ Bf8 [2...Bxe8 3.Bxd5+ Bf7 4.Bxf7+ Kf8 5.Re8#] 3.Bxd5+ Kg7 4.R1e7+ Bxe7 5.Rg8#
