im Palliser Richard
4NCL 2015.2.15 Yesterday. Position after White’s 24th move (24.Rc1). First sight it looks as though Black is in deep trouble, but a closer inspection of the position reveals a terrible problem with White’s piece coordination.
BLACK TO PLAY AND CRUSH!
4NCL 2015.2.15 Palliser Richard–Shaw, John K: 24…Rg3!! Surprise! 25.hxg3 (It makes little difference what White does. Taking the Queen allows mate in two) 25… Qe4! 0-1 Some days it is better to stay in bed!
