Saturday’s 30-second chess tactic
SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
The annual Gibraltar chess festival got underway this past week. Many of the world’s top players have braved the traditionally poor January weather and crowded playing conditions for a chance at winning one of the biggest cash prizes on the European open circuit.
The chess is excellent! Below is the position after 25 moves from the game between GMs Kualots and Laznicka. Black had just started chopping wood along the c-file and his last move was 25…Rc8, which turns out to be a decisive error.
WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN!
