Sunday’s winning 5-second tactics
As the day progresses I will add more examples. Good luck!
Peterwitz, Klaus (2125)
fm Kummerow, Heiko (2273)
Munnsterland Open; Senden, Deutschland 2014.10.14 Position after 19 moves. A position with a pawn structure similar to lines in the CaroKhan and/or Scandanavian. Black has castled Queenside but has not reacted well in the centre, opening lines prematurely and giving White the opportunity to develop an attack that turns out to be unstoppable. Do you see the idea?
WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN!
Munnsterland Open Senden, Deutschland 2014.10.14 Kummerow, Heiko–Peterwitz, Klaus: 20.Rxe5! A strong positional sacrífice that deprives Black of his best dark-square defender. 20… Qxe5 21.Bf4 Qe7 (Black must prevent Qd6) 22.Qa4! f5 If instead 22…a6 23.Qa5 is curtains. 23.Qxa7 Ne5 24.Nxf5 Bxf5 25.Bxf5+ Kc7 26.Qa5+ b6 27.Qa7+ 1-0
