Today’s winning 5-second tactics
Boursier, Julien (2072)
gm Balogh, Csaba
18th Oscaro.com Open Bastia 2014.10.19 Position after 21 moves. Black has played a bit recklessly, allowing his most powerful piece to be completely locked out of play on a6. Did he think that White was going to let him win his c-pawn? In anycase, White’s pieces are perfectly placed for the enslaught…are you up to it?
WHITE TO PLAY AND CRUSH!
wim Terao, Juliana Sayumi (2229)
gm Granda, Julio
IX American Continental Championship Rio Grande 2014.10.19 Position after Black’s 17th move, 17…Nxa5. Black must have reckoned that an experienced grandmaster such as Granda had simply left this pawn enprise!
