Today’s winning tactic!
SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
POSITION AFTER WHITE’S 27th MOVE
From the recently concluded IberoAmericano Championship in Quito, Ecuador. A thematic attack in the King’s Indian has lead to both King positions being open and dangerous. But it is Black’s move and he who strikes first …often is victorious.
BLACK TO PLAY AND WIN!
