Today's 5-second tactics
Monday! The start of another week of training…try these examples below. I will add to them as the day progresses. Solutions later. GOOD LUCK!
An oldie but goodie! Helsinki, 1961. Position after White’s 35th move (35.Kh1). The young grandmaster has been outplayed and finds himself on the defensive, literally cornered. Black’s pressure on the g-file is palpable, and there are a number of lines for Black to win a pawn…BUT Black deserves more than a pawn here!
BLACK TO PLAY AND WIN!
Hort Vlastimil– Zinn Lothar: 35…Rxg2! 36.Nxg2 Bxg2+ 37.Kg1 Bxh3+ 38.Kh1 Bg2+ 39.Kg1 Bf3+ 0-1
