Hi Chess Friends,

I posted some of my games from the recent Maryland State Quick Championship in my previous blog post. I left the most interesting tactical moment as a puzzle, which no one answered, so I'll leave it here. My opponent, playing white had dropped a pawn in the opening, but he responded to my threat against his b2 pawn with Nc3! I didn't take the pawn, but see if you can find white's path to an advantage if black takes on b2.
