Tactics from Russia_Tch 2018
Winning Chess Tactics!
Good day, Tuesday! So many really interesting tournaments going on at the same time. Here I start with some spectacular tactics (and games) from the super strong Russian Team Championships taking place in Sochi. This is a work in progress, and so during the day I will add to this article. As always, the pgn can be downloaded at the end. Good Luck!!
fm Skatchkov,V – gm Maletin,P
White’s King appears to be safe enough, but remember what I said about first appearances! Never trust them in chess! Black to play and crush!
gm Maletin,P – gm Shirov,A
Grandmaster Maletin is in great form in Sochi! Here he appears to be in trouble, Shirov counting on d5 to be met advantageously by c5! White to play and crush!
gm Riazantsev – im Tsydypov,Z
Black is allowing the former Russian Champion to build up a dangerous initiative on the Kingside. Not a very wise strategy! White to play and crush!
