Timely Tactics #1 - Sokolov vs. Valguarnera

Everyone knows that practicing tactics is one of the best ways for a class player to improve her results. But sometimes it's hard to find new puzzles, not just the same old exercises passed from one book to the next.

The Pied Chessman's solution is to collect brand new tactical positions from games as recent as just a few days old. This puzzle is from the first round of the 1st Cento Open with GM Ivan Sokolov vs. Girolamo Valguarnera.

See the complete game score after the break.
