SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
From the strong international open in SKOPJE which is taking place right now. White has great piece coordination, all of which is nicely centralized. Black, on the other hand, is left dangling…looking for counter chances on the Queenside , far away from his majesty. NEED I say more?

Also from Skopje. Here things would not be so clear if that pawn on a7 was Black! BUT, it is not: it belongs to White. This gives motive for White to find a way to take advantage of his small detail…(!)WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN!——————————-
