(our weekly chess puzzle)

Ludmilla Snurdface versus Mary Lou Bint
New York 1978.
White has black's king neatly locked away in the corner. One last overwhelming all out strike will finish it. But Black found an interesting get out of jail free card. Can you spot it?
Solution: Bint sneezed green phlegm all over the table. Snurdface, a notoriously picky player, refused to continue with her pieces covered in snot, thereby conceding the game.

Unfortunately the Snurdface manoeuvre has been formally outlawed by the International Chess Federation since 1984.
