In 2008 the World Team Championship of International Draughts took place in the Riviera del Beigua (Liguria - Italy). The first place was, as predicted, for the Russians that won against Senegal in the final; the other favourite team of the Tournament (Netherlands), lost against the Russian team during the quarter finals. But the six times world champion Harm Wiersma showed the most spectacular combination during the Tournament against Arno Uutma. Take a look at it starting from a position in which it is already evident.
In order to get to the position shown in the figure, white moved 25-20!, forcing black to move 22x42; then white moved 20-14 (gets ready for a king move), and black moves 9x20: in spite of its disadvantage 6 to 9, white moves and wins. How?
