SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
From Yerevan, 1994. Typical of such isolated queen-pawn games, tactical tricks and traps abound. Without realizing it, Black had just played a serious mistake.
WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN!—————————————gm SUETIN
1981, USSR ch. Once more an isolated queen-pawn story, but this time Black has made it worse by having delayed castling.
WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN
An oldie but goodie! Georgia, 1969. Black had just played 19…g6. It is not wise to forget to castle against the Magician from Riga!
WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN—————————————-
Budva, 1967 A very wild game so far! Funny, it was only here after Black had played his last move, 23…Ke7, that Bogdanovic thought that finally everything was under control…the next move must have come as a rude surprise!
WHITE TO PLAY AND MATE IN 5 MOVES!——————————————————-gm HULAK
Lublin, Poland 1976. Black had just played 18…h6, politely asking the Queen to move from her annoying position.
