Problem of the Week

School is back in session, and the scholastic chess season begins soon. One of my schools has its first chess club meeting this afternoon. Others begin soon. Each week, I create a small number of chess problems to begin each club's meeting.

This position occurred in Porges - Pillsbury, Nuremberg 1896.

The pawn on e6 must be captured, but whether with the f-pawn or by the sacrifice of a bishop requires deeper consideration.
