Today’s winning 5-second tactics
Today’s examples are taken from the WYCC taking place at Porto Carras, Greece. The event will continue until November 6. LINK
THE PERSISTENT BISHOP
WYCC Open U16 Porto Carras 2015.10.26 Position after 19 moves. Off-hand things look quite nice for Black, who will soon complete his development with …Nc6 (or perhaps exchange on g2 first). But–as we are often warned–things are not quite as simple as they might at first appear…
WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN!
WYCC Open U18 Porto Carras 2015.10.27 Position after White’s 56th move (56.Rb1). A hard fought game where both sides are trying their best to not just try to win, but to survive! But things stand very well for Black at present–his excellently placed pieces dominate the centre and allow him the opportunity to break in.
BLACK TO PLAY AND CRUSH!
