SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
POSITION AFTER 18 MOVES
A nice demolition in progress! Most of Black’s power is located over on the Queenside , far from his Majesty. This provides motif to Tartakower , justifying a sacrificial attack. The theme to remove the Black Bishop on g7 is a common these days. One need only remember the famous Smyslov vs Timman from Tilburg (1981) for a similar idea.
Especially nice is the double exchange sacrifice leading to a mating finale. Enjoy!
