White is a pawn up with the better game, but does not want to play all day to convert the point. He wants to win quickly! White to play and crush!
gm Ivanovic – Karisic,N Bar 22.7.2018
An excellent example of attack and defence.White has thrown everything into the attack. In the meantime, Black is attacking two pieces. How should White proceed?
gm Sevian – Flom,G World Open 6.7.2018
One of the themes in today’s practice is the danger of allowing the White Knight to go to f5. White to play and win!

How can White win material?
im Harshit,R – fm Seth,Homa World Open 5.7.2018
Black thinks he is winning the exchange with his Nd3. White to play and crush!

Black is tied down hand and foot. Fortunately for him, White is about to put him out of his misery. White to play and crush!

I like this one. Black seems to be doing quite well, except that his Kingside is weakened. White to play and crush!
