Friday’s winning 5-second tactics
“In practice we always base our preparations against an enemy on the assumption that his plans are good; indeed, it is right to rest our hopes not on a belief in his blunders, but on the soundness of our provisions. Nor ought we to believe that there is much difference between man and man, but to think that the superiority lies with him who is reared in the severest school.”
― Thucydides (460–395 BC)

World U18, Durban.2014-9-22. Position after Black’s 17th move (17…e5) Ofcourse White stands better, but he must play precisely to exploit this. The ‘normal’ 18.Pxg7 Kxg7 19.Bd2 is nice, but 19…f5 keeps Black kicking with coming counterplay. Surely White can do better than this…
WHITE TO PLAY AND CRUSH!
