Winning 5-second Tactics
Kavalek Part 2
Following up on last week’s Tactics à la Kavalek today I continue with Part 2. This mostly consists of tactics from Kavalek’s games that finish between move 26 and move 31. Enjoy!
Let’s get started!
Of course White must win this game, but show me some class while doing it! White to play and CRUSH!
Once again, White to play and CRUSH!
Three minor pieces are generally better than a Queen. Here is no exception. Black to play and win!

Black’s last move was to play Qc4, attacking the White Rook. (He should have instead taken the Bishop followed by Rb3 with a bit of counterplay) White to play and CRUSH!
Wijk Aan Zee 1977
White is obviously better. Two pieces for Rook and an open Black King position. But show some class! White to play and CRUSH!
How should White proceed?
