Thursday’s 5-second tactics!
SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
From Gibraltar this week! Position after White’s 17th move. Black has a dangerous attack on the Kingside, his Bishops in particular lined up and hungry for action!
BLACK TO PLAY AND WIN IN ONE MOVE!
Iglesias Fernandez, L
Also from Gibraltar! Position after 16 moves. A topical line of the Advanced French where Black has ”forgotten” to castle, preferring to take some White pawns. White is fully developed and ready for action!
WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN!
Gibraltar. Position after White’s 23rd move. A Dragon Sicilian that has seen White play a bit too passively. Now the Black Queen on f4 holds a strong trump: a nasty pin against White’s King. Surely there must be some way to exploit this…
BLACK TO PLAY AND WIN!
