SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
From yesterday at the Spanish open in La Roda , between two strong grandmasters. Black was hoping for 23.Rxf6?! (23…QxR? 24.Qxh7++) when 23…e5! is not clear and Black is probably quite ok: 24.Qh4 e4!
HOWEVER, White has a way to gain a clear advantage in the position above. Do you see the idea?
WHAT IS WHITE’S BEST LINE OF PLAY?
Also from La Roda. A curious position! White has an extra piece but Black is better! His pawn on b2 is very strong, though is –atleast for the moment–not going anywhere.
BLACK TO PLAY AND WIN!
