Friday’s winning 5-second tactics!
Today’s winning 5-sec tactics!
How are you today? What a summer! Here in Portugal lots of serious forest fires. In France, the problem is the reverse: lots of dangerous floods! If only they could exchange their problems… How to explain this to a child? Karma…Here I present 6 examples of tactical excellence from recent tournaments. PGN can be downloaded at the end. Good luck!
gm Lesiege,A – Bouton,C Quebec Open 21.7.2018
Yes, this tactic does happen in practice, and often! White to play and mate!
fm Chiku Ratte,O – Malek,O Quebec Open 22.7.2018
Beware the Knight on f5! White to play and get a winning attack!
fm Sai,Krishna – Boulay,D Quebec Open 21.7.2018
A failed opening experiment by Black. White to play and get a mating attack!
fm Chiku Ratte – Van Hoolandt Quebec Open 23.7.2018
Development should never be neglected. Here Black lags terribly behind. How can White win by force?
fm Sai,Krishna – gm Sambuev,B Quebec Open 22.7.2018
Black ‘forgot’ to capture the Bishop on b3 when he had a chance. Reshevsky once lost to a 14 year old Bobby Fischer with the same error. How can White crush Black?
Young,D – Krzyzanowski,P Britain_ch 30.7.2018
Black’s last move (Nc4) was what he was counting on to compensate for the open h-file. How should White punish Black?
