Try solving the following puzzle authored by me (for beginners).

White to move and gain a slight advantage, despite being a Queen down for a bishop at present:

[FEN "2k1r3/pp6/n5q1/1N3p2/8/3B4/5PPP/5RK1 w - - 0 1"]

    Not only drawing chances, but also starting a good fight for the win!

[FEN "2k1r3/pp6/n5q1/1N3p2/8/3B4/5PPP/5RK1 w - - 0 1"]

1. Bxf5 Qxf5 2. Nd6

and a cute family fork wins the queen. White is up a pawn.

  • That's right, good one @12358

    Possibly worth mentioning that Black cannot refuse the bishop since it's forking the king and queen.
